The Redevelopment Agency of Salt Lake City has big plans for the area known as Central Ninth.
A groundbreaking was held Wednesday at a vacant lot at 153 W. 900 South for the new Central Ninth Market, specifically designed for locally owned businesses.
“To the best of my knowledge, this will be the first development that's intentionally created with locally owned businesses in mind that is 100 percent locally owned," said Kristen Lavelett, executive director of Local First Utah.
The area has several new businesses already open and soon six more locally owned and operated companies will occupy the 9,216-square-foot building, including Jade Market, which will stand as the first local food market in the neighborhood.
