The City Center Market and Kitchen site offers three incubator spaces situation on the plaza. The spaces are intended for producers who are ready for private rather than shared production space. The entrepreneur incubator spaces provide the small business community the hard-to-find next step space for growing their local foods businesses. Tenants are also encouraged to participate in the weekly City Center Farmers Market.
The 11' x 22' spaces are unfurnished but flooring, wall-coverings, and infrastructure have been selected for culinary-based production businesses. Tenants may lease these spaces on annual terms for up to four years, and they may be assisted in developing a transition plan by the Francis Marion University Kelley Center for Economic Development.
