grand central market

i’m excited to hear that the grand central market is going to see some upgrades. it was almost twelve years ago when i was serving jury duty and stumbled on the grand central market for lunch, which helped the plant the seed for me to move downtown a couple of years later and set the stage for all the awesome things that have happened since.

the market seemed to be having a fairly rough go of it ever since i moved downtown, even before competition like the new ralphs market opened. the hours didn’t really accommodate the new residential influx, and few of the vendors seemed to notice what was happening in the neighborhood around them. i am optimistic that with many of the existing vendors having long-term leases already, they won’t be priced out, and their presence should help keep the market grounded and accessible to the diverse downtown community.
