Welcome to the SVRC Marketplace!
SVRC Industries, in partnership with the Downtown Saginaw Farmers Market, the City of Saginaw, and the Saginaw DDA, is redeveloping the iconic former Saginaw News building into a 100,000 square foot mixed-use facility, to be named the SVRC Marketplace. The Marketplace will impact that immediate community by bringing an estimated 10,000 people to Downtown Saginaw weekly. The anticipated result of this project on the larger community is an increase in access to fresh fruits and vegetables and job creation for local residents and the employees of businesses in Downtown Saginaw.
The SVRC Marketplace is a sustainable project that builds on SVRC’s core-mission of creating employment opportunities and community access by offering healthy food options, integrated jobs, supportive services, and vibrant gathering spaces in a single downtown development. The SVRC Marketplace will be a mixed-use facility supporting an indoor/outdoor farmers’ market, food-processing hub, business-incubators, Children’s Trauma Assessment Center, culinary arts training programs, cooler rental space, offices and retail spaces.
Redevelopments for the SVRC Marketplace will feature a new entrance off of Water Street and windows allowing abundant natural light into the food court atrium. The new entrance will allow for easy access into the building off the parking lot along the Saginaw river.
