Waterfront too valuable

In the PNR of Oct. 10, a suggestion was made that the vacant property at Seaport East be used for an indoor market selling locally produced produce and products.

I think this is an excellent idea to utilise the existing space, especially during the winter months.

Waterfront property is too valuable a location for a permanent market but it would be good to have the buildings occupied until the site is re-developed to its highest and best use.

This market could be set up quite cheaply and would give some indication if it would be economically viable for a permanent, indoor Farmers’ Market to  be developed at Beacon and the Pat Bay Highway — as I suggested to the Airport Authority and in a letter to this newspaper in July.
