Local Bites: Armature Works' Heights Public Market

Get ready for an image-heavy post, because there is so much to discover at the newly-opened Armature Works in Tampa Heights! A beautifully restored, mixed-use building that includes Heights Public Market as well as both event and work spaces, Armature Works is a welcome additional to the ever-thriving neighborhood. Ever since I was invited to the soft opening event, I've been back three times, and I'm still left wanting more.

A few things to take note of about Armature Works:

  • The Gathering space at hosts Tampa Indie Flea every third Sunday of each month and is also available to rent as an event space. In addition, there are five other event spaces at Armature Works that suit any celebration.

  • Heights Public Market features 14 currently-open food and drink vendors with three more on the way.

  • Armature Works is also home to Bay 3, a co-working space offering memberships, dedicated desks and private office space. Applications for founding memberships will be accepted soon.

Overall - I'm in love with this place. It's a fantastic place for a casual date night, meet-up with an old friend, work-home-home day and so much more. Everything that I've eaten has impressed, and if you haven't been yet, you must make plans soon! Next up: I'm checking out Steelbach my next visit.
