  •  Since 1957 buyers and sellers from all over the world have been convening at the Dallas Market Centers (DMC) to do business. The Dallas Market Center was officially founded when the Dallas Decorative Center and the Homefurnishings Mart joined forces; their initial market drew some 1,850 vendors. The DMC has continually expanded, adding new buildings and new types of goods to suit the ever widening demand of buyers and sellers.

Dallas Market Center, one of the largest wholesale markets in the world, encompasses over 5 million square feet of buildings and services where buyers and sellers meet to do business. This film, produced by Robert Redd, provides an overview of this busy intersection of commerce. The film presents all aspects of why Dallas is the ideal setting for a world-class market: the city's position as financial and business hub of the Southwest, its size and infrastructure, and the amenities available to participants. It also gives a glimpse of the operations and activities that take place inside the market's walls.
