Centre Market On Valuable Ground

From: "Newark, the City of Industry" Published by the Newark Board of Trade 1912

The public market is located in the very heart of the city, and while plans are now being discussed for its improvement, there is also some talk of its removal to a less expensive site, farther away from the business section of the city. The building is a two-story, narrow structure, running the entire length of a long block; and flanked on either side and on both ends by busy streets. In addition to a large open space which is given over to the use of market wagons and trucks from nearby and distant farm-lands, there is the long wide ground floor of the market, which is rented in big and little sections to dealers in meats, vegetables, fish and game and other food supplies. The upper floor is used by the market clerk.
