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.

It’s exciting to see the progress being made toward opening a public market in Madison–it’s been a long time coming! Not only will we have access to local foods year-round, but the vision and development of this market is truly inclusive and diverse, working with a number of women-owned businesses and entrepreneurs of color, from a diversity of cultural backgrounds. Food is such an important expression of culture and a means for connection–I’m looking forward to celebrating and connecting with our diverse community of inspiring and passionate food entrepreneurs at our public market! - Otehlia Cassidy, Madison Eats Food Tours
