We're on a Mission

There are lots of ways to think about Pearl; it’s a new take on an old neighborhood, it’s a place to live and shop, it’s an extension of the River North project.

To us, there is one thing that acts as the true heart and reason for this project – food. Food brings us together; food helps us tell stories about who we are and where we come from. We like to think of Pearl as an experimental space, collaboration between farmers, ranchers, chefs, home cooks and people who just love food. Our commitment to food is evident in every corner of Pearl. Our famers market is the first year round market in the region. We’re home to the third U.S. campus (along with New York and California) of The Culinary Institute of America, and two San Antonio natives and CIA graduates have opened up award-winning, innovative restaurants on site.

Everyday we want to continue to evolve the way we eat, cook, shop and learn about food. And we want your help; come eat with us, take classes, get to know our farmers, celebrate regional traditions and most importantly, join our community and our table.
