SAGINAW, MI (WNEM) -

The Michigan Strategic Fund in Lansing approved $3.475 million Tuesday in support of a new farmer's market in downtown Saginaw, which would be an in-door-outdoor market and facility for permanent year-round vendors. 

Proposed plans would redevelop the former Saginaw News building into a 100,000 square foot center to include a three-story marketplace, food processing hub, rental commercial kitchens, business offices, retailers, and headquarters for SVRD Industries, Inc.

Design of the farmer's market encourages walking in downtown. 

The site is near the renovated Bancroft Hotel, a 122-unit historic building that re-opened in the summer of 2014.

When completed, the project is expected to create 53 jobs.
