Transformation continues at Houston Farmers Market
“Three-and-a-half years ago, revamping the Houston Farmers Market was an idea. Last year, the transformation started to take shape.
Now the vision of Fred Baca, Jeff Lindenberger and Todd Mason – who comprise MLB Capital Partners and purchased the 18-acre property in May 2017 – is coming to life.
Mason recently provided a tour of the under-construction farmers market, which has operated since 1942 at 2025 Airline Dr. on the northeast side of the Heights, and said the bulk of the work is expected to be completed by the end of the year. Interior buildouts for a group of new tenants will follow, with the new-and-improved market slated to be fully operational in 2021.
‘It’s nice to be able to go out there and be able to actually see it,’ Mason said. ‘I guess in our minds, we’ve always been able to see it, but it was hard to get everybody else to see what it was going to be. To actually see structures in the air is exciting.'”
