The Auction House Market, a new Warehouse District food hall from the operators of St. Roch Market, announced its final vendors, who will be selling everything from sushi to Indian dosas.

The market is scheduled to open by the end of February.

The newly announced vendors are:

Aloha Lei: Inspired by trips to Hawaii, chef Tracey Davenport and her husband, Dave Kirtland, have created a menu of poke bowls and sushi. They even throw in a few local flavors, like on the redfish and spicy crawfish roll.

Alpha: The Egyptian-born couple Chris and Sandy Minias, veteran vendors at local festivals, will serve food from North Africa, Greece and the Middle East. Their menu includes, hummus, baba ganoush, salads and gyro sandwiches.

Bittersweet Confections: Pastry chef Cheryl Scripter, also a St. Roch Market vendor, will offer her pastries and sweets along made-to-order items in the morning like French toast or breakfast sandwiches.

Empanola: Patricio Garcia and Jimena Urrutia make baked empanadas, the South American pastry, with fillings like ham and cheese, ratatouille and even crawfish étouffée. Empanola is currently a St. Roch Market vendor but will relocate to the Auction House Market.

Tava: Manish Patel, who grew up in a family of chefs, will have Indian dosas, similar to crepes but with a slightly sour batter, with both meat and vegetarian fillings. Other items on the menu include lamb topped with mango relish and mint yogurt sauce and shrimp with toasted coconut and a coconut cilantro sauce.

The Mayhaw: The bar at St. Roch Market will open a second location at the Auction House Market with classic cocktails, beer and more than 50 wines.

The previously announced vendors are SOLA Deli, Elysian Seafood, Coast Roast Coffee and HAPPYJAXX.

The Auction House Market is part of new mixed-use development by Felicity Property Co. at the corner of Magazine and Julia streets. Along with the food hall, the building will also have apartments and retail outlets.

Built in 1895 for Tinker Copper and Iron Works, the property most recently housed New Orleans Auction Galleries, which moved to St. Joseph Street.
