Teresa Boardman has the goods on the new Farmers Market Flats going up next to the St. Paul Farmers Market (duh). District Energy heating and a year-round indoor farmers market both sound cool:
- A year-round, indoor Saint Paul Farmer’s Market on the street level of the building, complete with room to showcase products from more than 160 area growers and producers and demonstration space to involve customers in the experience.
- Heating and cooling by District Energy, which provides community energy services utilizing biomass and other environmentally friendly practices.
Will people take the source of a building’s energy into consideration when buying? I suppose some will from an eco standpoint. Does me make sense financially?
