Heights Public Market at Armature Works Introduces Two New Vendors

 Cress and Pane Rustica Due join mixed-use tenant roster within Armature Works

Heights Public Market located inside the historic Armature Works announces the addition of two new market vendors bringing the total food and drink vendors to 15. Cress, a salad concept and Pane Rustica Due, an artisan bakery, round out the roster of vendors to offer both locals and tourists a great selection of local cuisine.

Cress, a brainchild from the restaurant group who brought you Boca and Steelbach, offers seasonal salads, bowls and soups made-to-order using the freshest ingredients including lettuce which is grown aeroponically.  Guests will have the option to choose from a variety of crafted salads or can build their own. There are vegan and gluten free options for those with dietary restrictions and anyone wanting to eat healthy on the go.

“Guests of Armature Works will be drawn to our healthy alternatives that can be prepared in a salad or a bowl,”  says Matt Mangone, Director of Culinary at Cress. “Our menu will change from season-to-season to take advantage of the health benefits from using seasonal ingredients as they retain more nutrients than their counterparts, making them a better choice.”Cress



Pane Rustica, a household name in Tampa for over 20-years, is expanding the South Tampa restaurant with a second location, Pane Rustica Due (Due means two in Italian). Guests can expect fast-casual, made-to-order sandwiches, pastas and baked goods with an artisan flair. The menu is a mix of existing favorites as well as newly created dishes. All baked goods will be made from scratch and on premise in an open baking area.

“Having most recently celebrated 20-years of being in business; our commitment to bring the Pane Rustica brand of quality and soulful food to Armature Works was an easy decision,” says Karyn Kruszewski of Pane Rustica. “We look forward to being part of the Heights Public Market food scene.”Pane Rustica
