Downtown public market building takes shape
WATERLOO ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Â The Waterloo Development Corp. is looking for a butcher, a baker and well, not exactly a candlestick maker.
The former TruGreen ChemLawn building at 325 W. Third St. is currently being renovated into a Public Market building as part of the Riverloop Expo downtown renovation project.

I hope this turns out to be a nice addition to downtown, but I really don't like the "if you build it and they will come" feeling from this article. They should build out at least a commercial licensed kitchen. With Waterloo being Iowa's most diversed city, think of all the sauces, dressings and other tempting food products that could be produced from such a place. YUMM!
