The one thing that truly stood out to us on our visits was the community – or lack
of it. The surrounding locale felt desolate, empty and sad.

This got us thinking – what can we do to change that? How could we start to bring
the attention away from Buchanan street and draw it towards The Barras?

The sense of community, however, did shine through when we took a visit on a
sunny Sunday afternoon. The market was flooded! It was incredible to see the
transformation of the space from the weekday to weekend. The energy and sense
of community was so strong! What could we do in order to draw people there all
the time?
