Henrietta’s Market offers a unique feel with a contemporary twist.
SAN ANTONIO, TX –The Westin La Cantera Hill Country Resort announces the opening of its newly complete market. Staying true to the original King Ranch design inspiration of the resort, HKS Architects of Dallas, created Henrietta’s Market. Named after Henrietta Chamberlin King, matriarch of the famed King Ranch, Henrietta’s Market is a design marriage of traditional Texas textures with clean, modern function.
The HKS design team created a market concept that combines the small town Texas market and the vintage ice cream counter. Henrietta’s Market offers a vintage feel with a contemporary twist. By carrying a variety of traditional Texas ranch materials throughout the space the designers were able to communicate a vintage look and feel for the new contemporary space. The elements of an iron gate at the entry, rustic wood floors, reclaimed barn wood detailing, handwritten chalkboard menus and vintage lighting fixtures set the stage for the small town market and ice cream shop concept. These features are complimented with modern contemporary finishes of stainless steel, sleek white subway tiles and granite counters.
“The design of Henrietta’s Market is a true reflection of the Texas Ranch inspiration the resort is built on,” said Stuart Meyerson, General Manager of The Westin La Cantera Hill Country Resort. “It is reminiscent of markets and soda shops that invoke fond memories of our history.”
The key offering of the market is locally grown, freshly prepared grab-n-go options for guests to enjoy while meeting in the Market or take with them while experiencing the resort’s breathtaking views and surroundings. The market will serve homemade baked goods, breakfast wraps and sandwiches, as well as a selection of Westin SuperFoodsRx™ options made fresh daily. The centerpiece of the market is the homemade ice cream counter where a daily variety of flavors are available for filling waffle and sugar cones to blending into creamy milkshakes and smoothies. The Market will also serve freshly brewed Starbucks® coffee and specialty drinks, a variety of natural sodas, Texas wines and beers.
