Stakeholders Vision for the Eastern Market District. Leverage the attraction and legacy of the Eastern Market and build a dynamic, diverse, and uni…que urban district by:
– Strengthening the identity of the Eastern Market as a food-related district by enhancing the operations of the existing public market and by developing business opportunities for specialty food retailers, food wholesale operations, restaurants, food distributors, and food processors.
– Taking advantage of economic development opportunities
available throughout the Eastern Market District while maintaining authenticity (aka ‘funkiness’) and then using that funkiness to attract more creative people to live, work, visit, and invest in the district.
– Creating a mixed-use neighborhood that improves the business climate and enlivens streets and public spaces.
– Improving travel to and within the district and cultivating a unique sense of place by improving major corridors within the district.
