This Farmers’ Market Space is Enchanting – and Functional

Rotterdam Farmers Market

This new Market Hall in Rotterdam is a feast for the eyes.

It was built to provide a local, healthy food to the city’s center, but the architects did much more. They created this beautiful functional space for 100+ food vendors and surrounded it with apartments and other shops.

This is the kind of smart design that makes cities flourish and grow.

This was too beautiful not to share. I’d love to see something like this in a city here in the US.
