Throughout Logan Street Market, which basically takes up the complete a thousand Logan block, there may be seating, indoor and out, on both levels. Upstairs seating may be located to overlook the imperative marketplace. Also, there will be what Height is known as a “sparkling air corridor,” separating the sidewalk from first-floor providers. Windows and restrooms additionally may be added upstairs this week.

In an again nook of the primary ground, a small room has been set aside for an art gallery. The area has a storage door to open throughout farmers’ market days and every time while climate allows.
