Market Square is a one-half acre park with a building that features bays for up to six vehicles to sell produce and other goods. The architecture is reminiscent of a red barn with a corrugated tin roof, evoking ties with the city’s history. A pavilion extends the ability to include more vendors for farmers’ market just to the west of the barn. Shade structures, landscaping, benches, and a paved area provide space for outdoor entertainment. A “pot-belly” water tower sits on the corner near the same location a similar tower stood in the early 1900s and acts as a directional beacon for those looking for Market Square.
Market Square was designed by Killis Almond and built by Phillips/May. A city facility, the Grand Prairie Sports Facilities Development Corporation contributed $450,000 toward the cost of the $1.2 million park. Construction began in March 2009 and the grand opening was held on October 24, 2009.
