According to an article in today’s Press Herald, the Public Market House’s 2nd floor renovation and expansion is near completion. An public open house is scheduled for Friday, and soon after the first 3 businesses to be located on the second floor hope to open: Market House Coffee, Peanut Butter and Jelly Time, and Pie in the Sky Pizza.
The space is open and inviting, comfortable and eclectic. Months of work have produced refinished wood floors and a brightly lit area overlooking Monument Square. Local artwork hangs on the red-brick walls.
“It’s sort of the fruition of what we want to be as a public market,” said Kris Horton, president of Market Vendors. “We see the market as a community meeting place.”
