The company is working on a report expected to be issued in about 10 months that will include ideas for improving and growing the market. Upgrades could cost up to $25 million.

Market Ventures was one of five companies that submitted a proposal. The company’s contract began Dec. 1.

Lexington Market is the best known of the city’s six historic public markets. They others are Avenue Market, Broadway Market, Cross Street Market, Hollins Market and Northeast Market.
