Dallas considers farmers market improvements

Posted: Updated:

The Dallas City Council will hear a plan Wednesday for major improvements to the money-losing farmer's market.

The city has found a private development group that wants to take over ownership and daily operations of the market. Their proposal includes a $64 million renovation to the area on the east side of downtown.

Most of the funding would come from private sources.

The new development would include shops, apartments, restaurants, a stage for live music, a beer garden, a community garden and plenty of covered space for farmers to continue selling fruits and vegetables.

If the plan is approved, construction would begin in October and be completed in phases over the next two and a half years.
