New to Erie Downtown is the Flagship City Food Hall and the Flagship City Public Market. Located on North Park Row, the Flagship City Food Hall is not your typical mall food court. The Food Hall showcases Erie’s diverse culinary scene with no franchises or chain restaurants. Featuring nine local vendors and seating for up to 160 people, this is the Community’s Dining Room! Just a few doors down from the Food Hall is the Flagship City Public Market, Downtown Erie’s first grocery in decades! The market features three vendors: a full service natural foods grocery store, distillery and butcher market with beef, poultry, seafood and deli selections.
Grab a meal or sip on your favorite drink with your faithful companion by your side. Several local restaurants welcome well-mannered, leashed dogs.

Man’s best friend is also welcome outside and inside Black Monk Brewery . Stop by Icing on the Lake for fresh, homemade doggie treats to reward your special pooch. They also make custom doggie cakes and cupcakes (order at least 2 days in advance).
