Clean Sweep Frederiksted

Clean Sweep Frederiksted, an economic development non-profit focused on the town’s historic district, is working closely with community members and the V.I. Department of Planning and Natural Resources to reimagine the Frederiksted Fish Market. The market, historically one of two main fishing points on the island of St. Croix, hopes to be transformed through the workshop into a thriving outdoor fish and produce market and community gathering space.

Clean Sweep Frederiksted, an economic development and revitalization non-profit focused on the town’s historic district, is working closely with community members and the Virgin Islands Department of Planning and Natural Resources to reimagine the Frederiksted Fish Market. The market and immediate vicinity hold historic significance dating back to the 1700s, as one of two main fishing points on the island of St. Croix. However, the fish market has fallen into disrepair and lacks basic infrastructure. The workshop will facilitate a design process to reimagine the space as a thriving outdoor fish and produce market and community gathering space, with the goal of driving economic opportunity for residents and revitalization of the surrounding neighborhood.

Workshop coming 2021-2022. Stay tuned!
