Since opening in August 2013, Tom McFall and Ruchi Mistry's Huriyali (401 Huger St.) has been a fresh food oasis on the cusp of the Meathacking District. Now they're urban retreat is expanding. The couple plans to open Huriyali Market before the end of the month.

"We'll sell coffee, beer, wine, wellness shots, as well as hot food like eggs to order from Fili-West," says McFall.

The new space, which occupies a former Freedman's Cottage, has undergone a huge facelift which involved bringing it back from near destruction from termites. Inside, McFall and Mistry have exposed the original fireplace, opened up the walls to extend to the kitchen, and added an epoxy topped copper bar that McFall designed himself.



As for the market, Huriyali will sell produce, eggs, and Lowcountry Creamery milk near the entrance in a cooler along with to-go meals, then pantry staples like cereal will be on shelves in the back, along with another cooler for their signature juices.

In order to meet the neighborhood's breakfast demands, Huriyali's expanded menu will offer things like buckwheat pancakes with flax, coconut, and coconut whipped cream along with Counter Culture Coffee to go with it.

The plan is to start with breakfast lunch and wine service, then add dinner.

It's a big shift from their original 300-square-foot space that housed on any given day nearly 700 pounds of produce. Now, with a walk-in and proper kitchen, the owners hope to better serve the neighborhood.

"The community has been so supportive," says McFall.

"We want to serve as much local, healthy food while still tasting good," adds Mistry.

Look for Huriyali Market to open before the end of July.
