Set to open on Fulton Mall in downtown Brooklyn this summer, the Dekalb Market will bring together creative entrepreneurs in a community setting. The new market will be housed in a collection of salvaged shipping containers and will include an incubator farm, a food market, an events and performance venue, and a collection of eateries and work-sell spaces. The Not Just a Container contest challenges entrepreneurs to design the most creative and innovative uses for a shipping container in a downtown Brooklyn retail location. Uses for the space include, but are not limited to: a farm structure, a store, an art installation, work-sell space, a restaurant, and sports and music venues. Entries will be judged on the following criteria: design quality, sustainability, community impact, and entrepreneurship. The winner will receive six months free rent at Dekalb Market, and $3,000 for the design and construction. Submissions will be accepted until April 9th – enter yours today!
