As a public market, with the mission to support a thriving small business vendor population, we should look at all public spaces in the market to see how we can maximize their potential.
We should develop plans for space currently vacant on the second floor, formally the vendor’s locker room. Leveraging the already allocated State of Ohio capital funds, we should develop and execute on plans to renovate that space in a way that welcomes in the public and supports the mission of the West Side Market. Ideas have been floated to make that space a test kitchen, small café and gathering space, and much more. This is underutilized space that could very positively contribute to the vibrancy of the market and generate revenue to reinvest into the market.
