The Armature Works Heights Public Market – a 22,000-square-foot industrial market – is Tampa's latest go-to spot for foodies and architecture fans. The 1910 building was formerly the storage and maintenance facility for Tampa Electric's streetcars, contributing to the urban feel it embodies today.
Recent visitors loved the variety of dining options and the space itself.
