BALTIMORE (WJZ) – Baltimore is eagerly awaiting the opening of the new Lexington Market, but before that happens, the market wants to hear from residents on what they’d like to see in the community program.
The market launched a Survey 18 questions to find out how residents think it should create a community vision for the market. Community vision includes organizational and institutional involvement, activities and events.
Events can include concerts, art events, personal development programs, entertainment, and even farmers markets.
The survey also asked visitors what they would like to buy from the food in the market. Markets recently announced Taharka Brothers Ice Cream and Ovenbird Bakery will be participating in the combination.
Lexington Market has received hundreds of vendor applications for space in the new building. The market is finding applications of all kinds, especially from meat, fresh produce, indian food, sushi, BBQ, burgers and sweets or snacks.
Called the longest continuously operating the public market in the United States, the 240-year-old institution is undergoing a $40 million redevelopment and renovation by Baltimore-based developer Seawall.
The conversion required a new 61,000 square foot market building to be built on top of the existing south parking lot and the demolition of the dome building.
Once the project is complete, an open space will become a pedestrian plaza on Lexington Street. The market remains open during construction, which begins February 2020.
