Built in 1886, the building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
From its beginnings as livery and horse-drawn carriage storage facility to a notable run as the original home of Portland's Old Spaghetti Factory, the building has been around for a long time.
Throughout the 80s and 90s, the building was home to several nightclubs, until 2016 when the Pine Street Market officially opened.
The communal dining room and counter service restaurants give Pine Street Market much of its appeal.
