The CRDA is continuing to discuss plans that would bring a fresh food market to the central business district of Atlantic City.
The plans have been in the works for a few months now. It calls for an open public market, much like the Reading Terminal Market in Philadelphia, to be developed near the Tanger Outlets.
It's all part of the CRDA's plan to continue to add non–gaming attractions to the city.
"We've been focusing thing we can do to augment gaming. Obviously, we know gaming is central to the economy, but what other things should we be doing, like Margaritaville, or Bass Pro," said CRDA Executive Director John Palmieri.
Palmieri says the market would sell locally grown produce and flowers, along with food and wines produced in the area. Preliminary plans show the market would cost around $20 million.
