Merchant Selection Process

Be a Part of the Madison Public Market!

The Madison Public Market will have a variety of vending opportunities for businesses of all sizes. From large, restaurant anchor spaces to temporary small booths, the Public Market will support vending opportunities for 130+ businesses every year.

The 30 permanent vendors for the Public Market will be selected by the Madison Public Market Foundation, a 501(c)3 organization that will operate the Market. To date, only 5 Market Merchants have been selected. For the remaining 25 permanent vendor spaces, a list of criteria and a selection process will be announced in mid to late 2021. Until then, interested entrepreneurs are encouraged to complete an online vendor interest form. Businesses that complete this form will be notified when the selection process is announced. We will also invite businesses on this list to participate in our pop-up markets and other promotional events once we are beyond the COVID-19 pandemic.


If you have questions about merchant opportunities or the selection process, please contact info@madisonpublicmarket.org.

“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
