Abstract

Market Halls are public spaces critical to social and economic development. They are a reflection of the cities they inhabit. These markets are the beating heart of the community. They are more than just places of commerce – they are a microcosm of the city.

A Market Hall or upscale farmers market provides an opportunity to bring healthy food options to neighborhoods, support local businesses all while bringing together a community. Specifically, a market hall in Richmond, Virginia will showcase the best the city has to offer from our strong farming community, award winning food and chefs, variety of breweries, talented artisans and bustling entrepreneurial community.

Modeled after Torvehallerne in Copenhagen, this space will draw people to downtown Richmond, introduce local vendors, and integrate and encourage community by connecting people through conversation.
