PepperPot’s opening marks new shared space concept for Columbia Market House

Serving a variety of Caribbean dishes, PepperPot opened earlier this month in the Columbia Market House, taking the spot previously occupied by Gypsy Kitchen, which had been an anchor restaurant for the historic market but closed in June.

Like Gypsy Kitchen, PepperPot is open on some days when the market is closed, keeping a Wednesday through Saturday schedule inside the 15 S. Third St. facility. The market’s full roster of vendors is open only on Saturdays.

But unlike Gypsy Kitchen, PepperPot does not have exclusive use of the market’s kitchen, or the 100 seats arrayed in front of its stand. That’s because PepperPot isn’t actually an anchor restaurant but instead represents a new effort to revitalize the historic market by offering shared kitchen and seating space to food vendors.
