There's an idea floating around Sioux City now to create a city "global market" somewhere in downtown that would be a place for a myriad of food/produce vendors. Things such a mini restaurant stands of all ethnic varieties, take away food/ready to eat, take & prepare items. Fish & meat markets, cheese, bakeries, wines and the like. Interesting idea. Would be cool to pair it with the pending Sioux City ArtSpace project. The Battery Building would be a good fit. Some market rate condos on the top floor(s), ArtSpace under that on a floor or two and the market hall on the ground floor. The new Cone Park south across the street with an outdoor Farmer's Market with access off Wesley Parkway & I-29 at the new 3rd Street connection and that West End/Pearl area would be super hot.
