Bull Head Pit Beef Closes at Cross Street Market, New Tenants Close to Deals

| April 18, 2022 | 0 Comments

Bull Head Pit Beef has permanently closed its stall at Cross Street Market. It opened in July of 2020.

Bull Head owner Larry Jackson issued the following statement to SouthBMore.com in an email:

We are disappointed to have to close our Cross Street location. We opened four months into the pandemic shutdown and we knew that it was going to be an uphill battle. Cross Street Market has undergone a beautiful renovation and in a normal environment where people feel free to wander in and out of indoor spaces it will most likely be a huge success. In the world that we live in now it is a little tougher to get noticed. In a walking community like Fed Hill businesses depend on street visibility. At this point only three of the tenants inside the market have any signage on the outside of the building.  We were a new brand to the market and found it difficult to get consistent traction. We wish the other tenants luck. We look forward to the future opportunities and growing our location in Columbia and our food truck business.

Caves Valley Partners (CVP) holds the management agreement with Baltimore Public Markets Corporation and is the controlling partner on the project. CVP Partner Arsh Mirmiran told SouthBMore.com that his team is trying to wrap a deal with a group of local radio stations that would build a studio in one of the stalls and an adjacent stage. The company would shows out of one of the stalls and bring musical guests to the market. He said a deal for an Italian concept is also getting close.

In the past year and a half, vendors Annoula’s Greek Kitchen, Ono Poké, PhubsRice Crook, Rooster & Hen, Royal Farms Chicken, Southrn’ Spice, Cans Filling Station, Bull Head Pit Beef, and Old Line Cocktail & Wine Bar have closed at Cross Street Market. New concepts added in that period of time include DMV EmpanadasThe Chicken Lab, Blowfish PokeWatershed, Atlas Fish Market, and Crepe Crazy.

Atlas Restaurant Group took over operations and marketing of the market in February.
