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.

“The Madison Public Market, long in gestation, offers us an extraordinary opportunity to create something special for the public good. It is a unique mash-up inter-weaving economic development, social enterprise, arts, culture and local history, creative place-making, and much more. What a unique asset that will benefit our local community for many years ahead!” - Karen Crossley
