The Redlands Public Market
The historic Mutual Orange Distributors (MOD) Packinghouse, built in 1912 as a citrus packing house, stood vacant for many years until being purchased by Arteco Partners. Now, this landmark building's rich history will be preserved as it becomes a culinary marketplace that celebrates Redlands' agricultural heritage and today's finest hand-crafted cuisines. The Redlands Public Market will showcase more than a dozen eateries and food artisans that will make residents become regulars and turn visitors into food tourists.
The masonry and steel-framed building has brick walls and arched doorways, skylights, an old service elevator, basement and other remnants of its days in the citrus-packing industry.
It’s considered a contributor to the Santa Fe Depot District, a National Register District, that includes 17 contributing properties in the downtown core.
The building is near the Redlands Mall, another building expected to soon be revitalized, Santa Fe Depot train station, the downtown core and the future Redlands Passenger Rail Project.
