This is the new look of Richmond’s Farmers’ Market on 17th Street in Shockoe Bottom. Most of the green-topped sheds, fixtures since 1986, are gone, creating a more open space for public events. The remaining sheds allow the 236-year-old market to remain in operation. The shed removal, which cost about $88,000, is the first step in a planned $2.5 million facelift for the market, including the installation of promenades and new landscaping. This photo was taken a few days before the start of the UCI Road World Championships.
