The city of Toledo is working hard to bring new life to the Erie Street Market.
The hope is to revitalize that area of the city and help give those who work and live downtown more places to shop.
Monday, City Council members put together a lease agreement for ‘Sustainable Local Foods', a hydroponic growing operation located on Hill and Byrne. The company grows food and sells it locally.
"Erie Street Market's been not very well used for the last few years and it costs the city more to keep it heated," said City Councilman Rob Ludeman. "It'd be good to have some tenants in there."
Ludeman says the city is also negotiating with Lucky's Market, a national grocery chain.
Erie Street Market has gone through major changes over the years. The former municipal garage was transformed was transformed in the early 90's, and the city tried to attract restaurants and shops into the facility.
Eventually, the cost of running the building became too expensive and the city evicted the tenants, with the exception of the Libbey Glass Store.
