Important capital projects and other changes are in the works at the Market! Coming in 2015:
New Winter Shed and Market-wide Capital Improvements: The Market is now in an intensive planning process to improve the Market--changes include a new Winter Shed, renovations of existing sheds (and enclosing one of the open-air sheds), a new storefront building, significant renovations of the Market Office, and demolition and construction of new rest room facilities.
