St. Paul's Keg and Case to reopen with some vendors leaving, 8 more joining

New rules mean visitors will also be allowed to walk around the building with beers or hard seltzers.

After being closed for more than a year due to COVID-19, St. Paul's Keg and Case West 7th Market will reopen this Saturday, May 1.

The food hall confirmed its reopening date on Thursday, and said visitors will notice some changes as a result, not least the addition of eight new vendors – seven of them food and drink-related.

The past year has seen the likes of acclaimed restaurant In Bloom close its doors, while Sweet Science Ice Cream recently announced it was moving its store to Edina.

And the food hall has also confirmed that Bread & Boba, Revival Smoked Meats, and Spinning Wylde will also not be returning.

But there are eight vendors vendors who will be taking their place, opening over the course of the spring and summer:

  • Brand Builders Market – Opening May 1. An aggregate of local brands with a focus on natural health.
  • Purple Ice Cream – Opening May 1. Featuring unique and fun ice cream creations.
  • Valley Sweets – Opening May 1. An old-fashioned candy shop featuring fresh-spun cotton candy.
  • Jerusalem Mix – Opening May 15. A build-your-own hummus bar & Mediterranean café that is Kosher and Halal.
  • Poppin’ – Opening May 15. Discover delicious, flavored popcorns, pretzels, handmade pizzas and more.
  • Juice Wisely – Opening June 1. A juice bar featuring freshly made, cold-pressed juices, smoothies, and salads.
  • Jumbos – Opening June 1. Featuring hand crafted mini sausages and burgers.
  • Som Thai – Opening June 15. Serving pad thai and an assortment of curry dishes all made in house.

Two of the new vendors, Jumbos and Purple Ice Cream, are the work of St. Paul restaurateur Brian Ingram, who is also behind the returning Woodfire Cantina, and this past year opened The Gnome Craft Pub on Selby Avenue.

Among the original vendors who will be returning to Keg and Case are Five Watt Coffee, Pimento Jamaican Kitchen, Forest to Fork, O'Cheeze, and Rose Street Patisserie.

Clutch Brewing Co. is back too, and Keg and Case says it's made changes that will allow visitors to buy a beer or hard seltzer and drink it while walking through the food hall, or outside where live music will be held and movies will be shown.

“We’re excited to reopen the market with a new round of vendors and entertainment for guests of all ages,” said Gates Lindquist, Executive Director of Keg and Case.

"With our new outdoor music series and movie nights, Keg and Case hopes to become a true community hub, giving guests an opportunity to eat and shop from local entrepreneurs while enjoying the day with family, friends and neighbors.”

The outdoor area will include a "newly refurbished park" that has a stage, lawn games, and seating, with DJs playing music on Fridays and Saturdays between 5-8 p.m., before live music and movie series start in June, and will be held throughout the summer.
