Council Decides On Plan For City Market Future

June 16, 2014

City Council had four proposals to consider for the future of the City Market. They determined the best option for Charlottesville was to move forward with the “Market Plaza” plan.

Under this scenario, the new permanent home of the City Market would be a half-acre plaza paved with brick and stone.

This space would be deeded to the city and there would be space for 115 vendors in the plaza, plus an additional 32 potential stalls in an underground parking area.

Another 23 vendors could operate on Second Street Southeast if the city allowed closure of the road on Market days.

The city will now begin to negotiate a sale of property and an agreement on the new location.
