BELLINGHAM, Wash. – The Bellingham Public Market is asking for help to make it grow larger.

The owner is looking to expand into the vacant space in the same Cornwall Avenue building the market already occupies, but he needs donations to make it happen.

He hopes to make it a destination public market and says he’s already had conversations with an architect, community leaders and potential tenants for the space.

If the plan becomes a reality, the Bellingham Public Market would almost double in size to 25,000 square feet.

The market’s website has information on how to donate.
