10 August 2016: learning from NYC marketsPosted: August 10, 2016
I was just reminded about the US Project for Public Spaces (PPS) by a blog on their markets’ training which champions public markets’ huge range of benefits, showing how they help tackle issues facing urban and rural neighborhoods by strengthening local identity, creating healthy and accessible places that act as food hubs, and boosting local economies. The blog features markets in New York City and has some great photographs and info. This ranges from the wholesale Chelsea Market, to the outdoor, seasonal Hester Street Fair, to plans for redevelopment of the Essex Street Market.
Links to other areas of the PPS website are a feature for those interested to know more.
