Imagine our Market

Coming at the end of 2021, Madison’s first public market promises to be an inclusive, bustling marketplace showcasing much of what makes our community so special: locally grown and prepared delicious food, refreshing beverages and handcrafted artwork, jewelry, wearables and collectibles. Tourists and area residents alike will visit the year-round Public Market to sample a variety of tasty, unique cuisine, experience beautiful artwork, attend pop-up craft fairs and other fun events. Visitors will similarly enjoy the social aspects of this special place as they picnic in neighboring Burr Jones Field Park, chat with local farmers and producers and take in local music and entertainment. Whether visiting for an afternoon or stopping in to grab dinner on the way home, the Madison Public Market will be a favorite destinations for most everyone.

 

“Madison needs this Public Market. It’s an important opportunity for our children of color to have a place where they can go and see many other people of color owning businesses and finding success in our city. I’m excited to welcome our kids to the Market where we can teach them about business ownership. The Public Market is a place we’ll all be proud of.” - Judy Cooper, owner of QB's Magnetic Creations, a MarketReady participant
