Ever been to Pike Place Market in Seattle or Oxbow Market in Napa Valley? Those are models for POOL, a new collaborative market that's in the works in Mesa. It's anticipated to open this spring.
Real estate developer Brad Weinstock and retail consultant Skyler Hynes hope to attract entrepreneurial "upstarts and pioneers" to lease space at POOL. They're looking for a "florist, breadsmith, confectioners, those with organic products, those with organic products, artists, designers," and other creative types. The market will also feature spaces for live performances and chef-hosted cooking classes.
