The Market Experience

Want to entertain out of town family or guests with a truly Madison experience in the dead of winter?

Looking for a family outing on a quiet summer Saturday?

Don’t feel like cooking, but want a healthy, local take-out meal?

Hoping to find that one-of-a kind, hand-crafted gift for that special someone?

Need a beautiful, yet affordable community space to hold a birthday party, wedding or meeting?

Hoping to impress potential employees or business partners for your company?

 

The 50,000 square foot Madison Public Market will be a year-round destination that will be a must-see for visitors and a beloved destination for local residents. At the Public Market, you’ll find:

  • fresh, homegrown produce from local, small-scale farmers
  • culturally diverse and convenient prepared food
  • affordable community room rentals
  • temporary merchant space for unique events and pop-up markets (how about in-door farmer’s markets and winter Dane Dances?!)
  • commercial kitchen for food-processing, wholesale opportunities, and start-up support to grow the local food economy
  • specialty gifts from local artisans
  • a variety of outdoor green spaces and indoor community areas that bring people together
  • iconic artwork
  • a gathering place that brings the best of everything South Central Wisconsin offers in one friendly, vibrant place

 

“The Public Market Foundation is dedicated to engaging neighbors and the community about creating the Market as a truly inclusive and captivating destination. I’m pleased that 2,000 people have been inspired to share their ideas and opinions on the Market. As the project moves forward, continued feedback will only make the Market a great success!” - - Larry Palm, City of Madison Alder District 12
