Bridge & Machine Shop
Marketplace Project

Current Funding Need: Heating and air conditioning systems, building insulation, door modifications and electrical upgrades are among improvements that still need to be funded to establish a full-functioning marketplace on the first floor of the Bridge and Machine Shop building. 

May 2021 Update: Earmark federal grant funding request submitted to Sen. Manchin. In October 2020, Gov. Justice announced award of more than $742,889 in grant funds for construction of an elevator, stairs and concrete floor. An addition for bathrooms has been completed on the back side of the building and a fire suppression system has been installed.

Mirroring the Capitol Market in Charleston, W.Va., our vision is attract year-round tenants and host a seasonal farmers market to provide fresh produce from Berkeley County and the greater Eastern Panhandle region in what is currently a "food desert" in the City of Martinsburg.

Combined with must-see historic "edu-tainment" attractions and other community activities, the Marketplace project is anticipated to attract 3,000 people per day and create more than 45 jobs in the first year of operation.
