Brooklyn’s most legendary pizza maker Di Fara will soon be dishing out pies in Williamsburg in a new food hall and market.

MRKTPL — the same team that’s running the new Staten Island food hall — is opening North 3rd Street Market this September between Berry and Wythe Avenues. The 15,000-square-foot space will have both permanent vendors and pop-up vendors.

Most of what will actually be available has yet to be announced, but at least one big confirmed name is Midwood pizzeria Di Fara, the more than 50-year-old restaurant from pizzaiolo Dom DeMarco that still constantly boasts a long line.

Despite the restaurant’s popularity, the DeMarco family has only recently started making it easier for fans to get a slice with the addition of services like delivery. Dom’s son Dom. Jr. has opened a pizza restaurant, but it’s in Las Vegas. This will be the only place outside of Midwood that locals will be able to pick up the iconic slice. Although some vendors will pop-up, Di Fara will be a permanent fixture of the market.

Eater has reached out to the Di Fara family and will update. Update: A market spokeperson says the family will take over 290 square feet of the hall and serve the same menu that they serve in the original location.

Elsewhere in the planned market will be an outpost of lauded pastry chef Fany Gerson’s West Village paletas shop La Newyorkina, a seafood and raw bar from chef Ed McFarland of Ed’s Lobster Bar, and a Champion Coffee.

In typical new Brooklyn fashion, MRKTPL along with developer LENY say that the market will be packed with wood and steel furniture that’s supposed to be “an engaging blend of nostalgic modernity.” Artist works will also be rotated in the space.

Here’s are renderings of the space. Stay tuned for more.
