The 12K SF food hall, described as chef-driven, is part of Lincoln Property's FLIGHT development, a 38-acre office campus inside the Tustin Legacy, a 1,600-acre master-planned community that was once home to the Marine Corps Air Station base.

The Mess Hall Market is the latest example of the growing popularity of food halls in Orange County. 

With Mess Hall, the county currently has six food halls that have opened since 2014. The others are:

  • The Anaheim Packing District in Anaheim.
  • Lot 579 at Pacific City in Huntington Beach.
  • Trade Food Hall in Irvine.
  • 4th Street Market in Santa Ana.
  • McFadden Public Market in Santa Ana.

Two more food halls are in various phases of development. 

Vietnamese businessman Frank Jao, who developed the Asian Garden Mall, is developing a 20K SF food hall in the Little Saigon area of Westminster, according to the Orange County Register.

Lab Holding creator and founder Shaheen Sadeghi, who developed the much-acclaimed Anaheim Packing District that kicked off the food hall trend in the county, is developing a 52K SF mixed-use retail and food destination at the site of the former LA Times press plant in Costa Mesa.

The food and retail destination is part of SteelWave and Invesco Real Estate's $200M, 380K SF creative office campus called The Press at 1375 Sunflower Ave.

The Mess Hall Market features several food and drink concepts, including the Drink Bar, The Lost Bean, Slapfish, Big Parm and Vaka Burger.

“Mess Hall Market is a one-of-a-kind culinary experience that brings together a diverse group of critically acclaimed chefs in a truly unique destination," Lincoln Property West Executive Vice President Parke Miller said. "We are thrilled to offer such an exciting on-campus amenity to employees at FLIGHT, and also to open our doors to food lovers across the region.”
