FANTAZAMA Market and Café 


Porter Street Night Market 

“Fantazma” is Spanish for “Ghost”. Ghost Food Halls combine the “ghost kitchen” concept, which serve meals exclusively for delivery, with the “food halls” dining concept that has become popular in recent years. DHDC wants to adapt that idea, including the “Fantazma Marketplace” for retail businesses to operate alongside these food businesses in a prime developing area of Detroit. Fantazma Marketplace will also include an outdoor patio space, as well as activation space in Dean Savage Park which is centrally located between DHDC and the partnering businesses, creating additional vendor and seating spaces for other local restaurants lacking safe, outdoor dining opportunities.

Porter Street Night Market will be a monthly vendor market that will give up to 50 startup businesses as well as established retail and food businesses, opportunities to put their products in front of consumers, prove new concepts, monetize ideas, and incubate small businesses on a monthly basis.

Fantazma and Porter Street Night Market will focus on Black and Latinx owned business, ensuring 65-75% of impacted businesses are Black and Latinx owned.  The Porter Street Night Market was developed in collaboration with Stephen Roginson of Batch Brewing Company and Greg Mudge of Mudgie’s Deli and Wine.
