Alpaca Market, a family-run string of health-focused food kiosks, is coming to Austin in February 2018. The central kitchen (and a kiosk) will be located at 507 Calles Street, Suite 100 in Holly, with other locations to come.
The Kerby family decided to open Alpaca Market after their son Noah developed severe food allergies, including gluten and soy. The Kerbys sought to find kid-friendly healthy food, and after recipe testing, Alpaca Market was born. Offerings include salads (“Not Yo Mama’s Cobb”), snacks, breakfast (like parfaits and paleo-friendly pop tarts), desserts (apple pie in a jar), and drinks. The family plans to source from local farmers and partner with the Capital Area Food Bank.
It appears that Alpaca’s kiosks will be similar to vending machines, where food will be served in jars, according to the website. Healthy restaurants are definitely having a moment, with the opening of the new Flower Child downtown and Snappy Salads in Westlake.
