Additional Vendors Selected for North Market Bridge Park
Vendor spots are filling in at North Market Bridge Park. Two additional merchants have been announced – zero waste retail store Reuse Revolution and North Market Downtown carryover Lan Viet.
Founded in 2018 by Christy Walters, Reuse Revolution is focused on providing biodegradable and/or reusable products to help people create less trash. North Market Bridge Park will be the first physical location for Reuse Revolution, which has previously operated at farmers markets (including the North Market and Dublin Farmers Markets), pop-up shops and online.
“North Market has already greatly benefited from the products and education offered by Reuse Revolution at our Farmers’ Market downtown,” North Market’s Executive Director Rick Harrison Wolfe says. “It is important to North Market’s mission to expand our sustainability options on a full-time basis. Christy is the best suited to the task and we couldn’t be more excited!”
Consumers will find a wide variety of products focused on zero-waste to lower-waste lifestyles, from reusable straws, coffee cups, water bottles, wine and cocktail tumblers, and produce and grocery bags, to bamboo kitchen utensils and serving and display trays, and even hemp pet toys and biodegradable glitter. The shop will also offer personal care items like safety razors and plastic free blades, reusable nursing pads, compostable deodorant and plastic free soaps, and shampoo and conditioner options in returnable aluminum bottles.

Holding down a spot at the North Market Downtown for over a decade, Lan Viet will expand with its second location in Dublin.
Focused on northern Vietnamese flavors, Lan Viet will serve up dishes like pho, banh mi, and rice noodle bowls. Egg rolls, summer rolls, and bean sprout salads will also be on the menu that is made fresh to order.
At the helm are mother-son team Lan Pham and Khanh Le.
“Lan and Khanh fully embody the spirit of excellent customer service,” says Wolfe. “This family continually proves themselves to be dedicated to their craft and to the community, and we are thrilled to see them take their business to the next level.”
With the new stall comes an expanded menu.
“At our Bridge Park location we want to expand our menu and pay homage to Hanoi and northern style Vietnamese food,” says Le. “We want to show that there are more flavors to explore past pho and banh mi’s.”

Reuse Revolution and Lan Viet join a lineup of eight vendors which have previously been announced, including The Dublin Farmer’s Daughter, Coastal Local Seafood, MoMo Ghar, Market Bar, Black Radish Creamery, Dos Hermanos, Flowers & Bread and Falafel Kitchen. After being announced as one of the first five vendors, Dough Mama shared late last week that they would be stepping back from their expansion plans due to financial hardships from being closed during the coronavirus pandemic.
Initially slated to open in spring to summer 2020, the North Market Bridge Park is now planning for a phased opening starting in late summer. The market hopes to be at full capacity by the end of the year. With room for 19 vendors, additional merchants are slated to be announced in the coming weeks.
North Market Bridge Park is located at 6750 Longshore St. in Dublin.
