Fair Deal Marketplace

The Return of a 24th St. Staple

APMA and Omaha Economic Development Corporation (OEDC) collaborated on this one-of-a-kind space along N. 24th Street. The marketplace consists of micro-retail units made of adapted shipping containers and housing eight small-businesses, including a popcorn maker and clothing boutique. A new building mimics the shape of the original Fair Deal Cafe and houses a restaurant and small grocery store. The project benefited from HUD financing as it addressed the food desert in this historic neighborhood. The end result is a unique experience anchored in historical context that sets the standard for future development in the area.

“It brings positive [change] to the corridor. These businesses provide not just economic development for the business owners, but it also provides jobs to support them.”
