New Restaurant Opens Near Historic Jackson, Ms. Hotel
Market has opened in downtown Jackson next to the historic King
Edward Hotel (which has opened as the Hilton
Garden Inn). According to Craig Noone, the chef and restaurant
owner, "I've always dreamed of opening a restaurant." Noone grew up in
Jackson, moved away, and came back when he saw the potential for a
restaurant near the hotel. The restaurant's name derives from the Parlor
Market Grocery Store that thrived here back in the 1920s. The standard
fare of the Parlor
Market is local Southern meals made from scratch, including even
moon pies, plus an oyster bar.
Growing up in Jackson, I'm glad to see the downtown area getting revitalized.
Reserve a table at the Parlor Market and other area restaurants.
