Dallas Farmers’ Market to Undergo Renovation
DF Market Holdings, new owners of the venerable Dallas Farmers’ Market intend to dramatically revitalize the neighborhood into a vibrant walkable, livable mixed-use community that will include recreation, dining and a showcase for locally grown produce and goods. The new principals, Brian Bergersen, Janet Cobb, Ruthie Pack and Blair Black, plans to spend $64 million to redevelop the site.
The city of Dallas has been searching for an owner and operator to make it into the premiere farmers’ market destination for North Texas for three years. Shed 1, which houses local farmers, is planned to have 60 booths, twice the current number. A year from now, many changes and improvements will be in place.
