State Farmers Market Master Plan

Dorothea Dix Conservancy, NC Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services 2019 Recreation, Master Planning Raleigh, NC 86 acres Back to Projects

HH Architecture, along with Timmons Group, was commissioned to design an updated Master Plan for the State Farmers Market in Raleigh, NC. With plans underway for the conversion of the existing Dorothea Dix property into a significant urban park, the adjacent State Farmers Market has an opportunity to substantially increase its visibility in the community. With the ability to attract more visitors and vendors, the Market could potentially see a substantial increase in its annual revenue as a visible component of North Carolina’s agricultural economy within Raleigh and the surrounding areas while simultaneously distinguishing itself as a nationally recognized destination.
