The new facility is planned as a family-friendly market featuring local seafood and produce vendors.

Ground was broken on the project located at 409 Aycock Street at the end of March with an expected completion date of September.

With over 12,500 sq ft of covered market space, and 2,500 sq ft for office and support space, the new marketplace is designed to be flexible enough to host a multitude of community events, in addition to housing the seafood and farmer’s market.

A large deck attached to the office space can be used as a small stage for different types of performances.

The covered marketplace design maintains the former open barn style in a pre-fabricated galvanized metal building.

The building has a galvanized standing seam metal roof to maximize solar reflection. The covered area features large industrial-sized fans for energy-efficient air movement within the barn.

The office building was designed using Autoclaved Aerated Concrete blocks to minimize construction waste, provide superior thermal properties and be resistant to high winds, tornados, flooding, fire, mold and termites.
