Six months after unveiling preliminary plans for refurbishing its Farmers Market and Flea Market sheds, the French Market will present updated plans at a public meeting tonight.
The meeting will begin at 6 p.m. in the auditorium of the Old U.S. Mint, 400 Esplanade Ave.
According to the French Market's Web site, "The goal of this project is to restore the market's authenticity and sense of place through a series of physical improvements -- such as deferred maintenance, improvements in infrastructure and amenities, upgrades to buildings and facilities, and improved traffic and pedestrian flow -- that are consistent with the market's historical character."
