The Alamo Quarry Market is a lifestyle center located in the Lincoln Heights neighborhood of north-central San Antonio, near the cities of Alamo Heights and Terrell Hills. The market had humble beginnings as a cement factory until it was later abandoned. Since then, the factory has been redeveloped into a bustling market, complete with a cinema, shops, bookstores, and several restaurants.
An open-air layout allows for each market visitor to peruse the collection of shops while also spending a day in the warm Texas sun. Start your morning off with breakfast or brunch from Snooze, an AM eatery with dishes made from scratch. Grab a cappuccino or latte from the on-site Starbucks to get your caffeine fix for the day from the on-site Starbucks, and start exploring.
Plenty of dining options are available throughout the market. Enjoy a slice at California Pizza Kitchen, try a new flavor at Amy's Ice Creams, grab a pastry at Corner Bakery Cafe, or take part in a fine dining experience at Fleming's Prime Steakhouse and Wine Bar.
Shopper's favorites fill up the market for those looking for a new look or just window shopping. Stores like Altar'd State, Nordstrom Rack, Lululemon, and J.Crew Factory are perfect for anyone looking to stock up on designer brands, boho-chic pieces, athleisure wear, or the perfect sweater.
If you're into shoes, then the market has quite a few places for you to get your fix. Fleet Feet Sports, Nike, Rack Room Shoes, SAS Footwear, and the famous Lucchese Boot Co. are all housed within the market.
