Market Building is going up
The ironworkers on this project have turned their focus towards the Market Building. It is great to see it come together. We are quite excited about what possibilities this building holds for us.
As you know, the Market has relocated to MacBain Community Centre for last and this summer season. The market will finish there at the end of November. Following that, the plan is to bring the vendors back to Main & Ferry in Spring of 2022 with a new building and a new indoor/outdoor experience. The site will be a wonderful blend of market stalls inside and outside of the building. We are also planning on adding Wednesdays to the rotation of the market during peak season. For years, residents have complained that they work every Saturday. The addition of a Wednesday market should be a welcome addition to the Exchange. We hope you are as excited about that as we are.
The Market Hall
Besides hosting the Market on Saturdays and Wednesdays (during peak season), the Market Hall is intended to be equipped to host a wide variety of events and activities. We heard the need for a space that is a mid-sized facility (150 seats theatre style) that is affordable to host vendor shows, music, theatre, dance and so much more. Community celebrations and events that bring the people of Niagara Falls will find a home here at the Exchange, and the Market Hall will be at the heart of it. This truly community gathering place will be a public space for City and community events alike.
