The Market Experience

From enjoying a family outing on a chilly winter afternoon to impressing out of town business partners, the Madison Public Market will have something to enjoy for everyone. Open year round 5-6 days per week, the Public Market will offer a wide variety of cuisine and handmade goods. No matter when you visit, the Public Market will have something new and interesting to discover during every season.

At the Public Market, you’ll find:

  • fresh, homegrown produce from local, small-scale farmers
  • culturally diverse and convenient prepared food
  • temporary merchant space for unique events and pop-up markets (how about in-door food cart festivals and winter Dane Dances?!)
  • specialty gifts from local artisans
  • affordable community room rentals
  • a variety of outdoor green spaces for outdoor seating and lounging
  • iconic artwork
  • a gathering place that brings the best of everything South Central Wisconsin offers in one friendly, vibrant place

Can’t wait for our Market? Neither can we! Help us make it a reality.

“After being involved with the MPM planning for over a decade, I could not be happier for city leaders and staff, and more importantly the entrepreneurs that will make it special, that this project is inching its way towards reality. The Madison Public Market will be a unique center of excellence serving the Madison Region in the agriculture, food and beverage industry. It will also anchor the Cap East District, making it even more dynamic. Kudos to all those involved.” - Michael Gay, Senior Vice President of Economic Development, Madison Region Economic Partnership
