Imagine our Market

The wait is almost over! Coming in 2019, 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.


“I am excited about the sensory experience that the Madison Public Market will offer. Some of my most memorable travel experiences have been the sights and smells of souks and markets in North Africa and South America. It is so great to meet the people who produce the products.” - Tom Otto, Economic Development Specialist, City of Madison
