Lexington Market redevelopment survey

Apparently there's plans to redevelop Lexington Market. I'm aware of the varying opinions that have been expressed on here about Lexington Market but the one thing I'm sure we all can agree to is that it's woefully underutilized.

The city agency that runs Lexington Market has created an online survey, soliciting feedback from the public about perceptions of the market and what they'd like to see change. I'm not sure if we're allowed to post a link to a survey but here it is, if you're interested in participating:

Apologies in advance If I wasn't allowed to post the link to the survey and it's removed by the moderators, and in that case you can easily find it by googling.

But what would you like to see change at Lexington? Would you like to see it become another Reading Terminal Market or something different? What would be your ideal Lexington Market?

  1. Relocate it to Rash Field. They're proposing sinking $20-25 million taxpayer dollars (!) into fixing it up, but it's still going to be in the same dismal location.

    1. i'd like to see Polock Johnny's come back and Otterbein's open a stall. Other than that, i like it the way it is.

        yeah maybe steam clean the sidewalks regularly and a little interior cosmetic work (do something different with the mezzanine) but otherwise, I sorta like the shabbiness and the location on transit is good.

          Yes. First--try a little cleanliness.
