A public market has traditionally be defined as a municipally owned and operated building where vendors sell fresh fruits and vegetables from stalls. The market place has always been a landmark of the city. Public markets create a hub of activities and social gatherings of people that enhances the entire area. It reflects civic importance of being connected through gathering and interaction which are an essential part of the inter- cultural urban life. Redevelopment of MAFCO market, project that will consolidate facilities for selling and distribution of food for consumers “this Food Port” will transform into community hub that shapes a “new model between consumer and seller.” The terminal market for perishable goods will act as a catalyst to activate the surrounding neighbourhood, it will also revitalise the foodscape of public spaces and plazas where buyers and sellers meet and vashi area in terms of exchange of goods, simplifying one of the complex urban relationships between architecture and food. Creating MAFCO market as retail terminal hub introduces public and seller relationship in city strong. wholesale market did not cater regular public interventions, which creates a problem for a common people. Emphasizing on MAFCO market will create opportunities of retail market as a plaza for public interventions.
