The North Market Downtown is about to boast a brand-new prepared food concept and butcher shop coming from a name many will likely already recognize.
According to a press release, the longtime seafood vendor COLO (formerly Coast 2 Local and Coastal Local), will be expanding its offerings in the North Market Downtown to include a butcher shop, poultry shop, a new prepared food concept featuring burgers and deli sandwiches, and even an oyster bar.
Now COLO, the brand officially adopted its current name after temporarily rebranding from Coastal Local to Coast to Local due to a lawsuit.

The rebrand to COLO has already taken place at the North Market Bridge Park, but the brand’s product offerings there will remain mostly unchanged.
At the North Market Downtown, COLO will combine a poultry shop, butcher shop and deli, offering this out of the current location of its vendor stall. Its seafood products will then be offered from the vendor space formerly occupied by Tajine House, which recently moved to the former home Preston’s: A Burger Joint.
COLO will also open a “proper” oyster bar, wrapping around the former location of Park Street Poultry, COLO owner Ian Holmes told 614Now.
The COLO butcher shop and poultry space will serve premade deli sandwiches and burgers, in addition to farm-sourced beef, pork and lamb. The seafood-focused COLO booth will also offer prepared food like shrimp po’ boys and more.
One of the North Market Downtown’s previous butcher shops, Saddleberk, also offered takeout sandwiches and butcher cuts, before it closed its Downtown location late last year. Saddleberk continues to operate a similar location out of the North Market Bridge Park.
“New name, same great food! COLO continues to impress with the freshest pier-to-plate seafood, raw bar, and café at both North Market locations. Not only is his product consistent and high quality, but Ian has also proven himself to be a wonderful Market community member; he even serves as merchant representative to the North Market board,” said Rick Harrison Wolfe, North Market’s Executive Director and CEO in a press release. “We knew we could trust Ian to reinvent the fresh butcher and poultry space along with a new prepared food concept, as these are very important components to North Market’s mission.”
