The first phase of the city’s $8 million Public Market Improvement Project will be complete this week, according to the city.
The city broke ground on the project in April.
According to officials, current indoor, “B-Shed” vendors will be moved to the temporarily-enclosed, “D Shed,” beginning Oct. 1, as phase two of the project approaches.
“I’m pleased with the rapid progress on the city of Rochester Public Market Improvement Project,” Mayor Lovely Warren stated. “Our public market is a community jewel that will soon provide an even better shopping and entertainment experience to the community. Investments like this are central to our efforts to create more jobs, safer, more vibrant neighborhoods and better educational opportunities for our citizens.”
The project’s second phase will begin in early October, and is scheduled to be completed by June 2017.
Once the new indoor shed is completed, “B-shed” vendors will move into the space, and the temporary “D Shed” will be removed to make way for 48 new outdoor vendors.
The public market will remain open Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 6 a.m. to 1 p.m. , and Saturdays from 5 a.m. to 3 p.m., year-round, throughout the duration of the project.
