Ninotsminda Public Market, Ninotsminda, Republic of Georgia

Market Expansion, Site Selection and Design, Operations Plan

The Market

Ninotsminda’s soviet era public market was unseemly, prone to flooding and used less and less by the farmers and traders who migrated to selling randomly along the street with no regular schedule.

The Job

Working with a local steering committee of townspeople, traders and farmers – we chose a new site for the market incorporating old buildings and a large, central market yard for outdoor vending.
New bathrooms and storage facilities were included into a plan allowing the public market to grow and operate more efficiently and pleasantly. (In collaboration with PPS)
