The former Checker Cab / Greyhound Bus depot underwent a $3.3 million transformation to become the SooMarket. Funded at three different levels , the project received about $1.7 million in Federal money along with $1.2 million from the city.
Fall and winter hours are Satudays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. The market is open Wednesdays from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. from the last week of June to Labour Day.
The move to its new location and to be part of the Downtown Plaza has taken almost five years to make happen. Visitors on Saturday also got a glimpse of the Downtown Plaza. The $11 million plaza is near completion and should open at the end of October.
