Union Station to get massive food market

The future looks brighter and brighter at Union Station. Along with the spiffy new passenger concourse that opened on Monday, the food and retail options at the revamped station sound very promising. The soon-to-open lounge for the UP Express will feature Balzac's coffee and craft beer from Mill St., but there's far more in store as renovations continue throughout the transit hub.

Toronto Life reports that the Burger's Priest plans to open a location in the station and that Carbon Bar co-owner Yannick Bigourdan has his sights on a rotisserie chicken restaurant to cater to hungry commuters. Perhaps even more exciting, however, is news that a huge fresh food market is also planned for Union.

Word is that 30,000 square feet of space will be devoted to the project, which sounds reminiscent of the one at Grand Central in New York except on an even bigger scale. Union Station is still very much a work in progress, but the future is beginning to sound drool-worthy.
