Madison Public Market

The City of Madison is creating a Business Plan for the Madison Public Market District. The Market District will be a multi-use, year-round faci lity that builds on and supports the Madison area's abundant local food system and numerous innovative food businesses and organizations.  The project is envisioned to include a range of uses that potentially include food wholesaling/distribution, food processing, direct food retailing, space for arts/crafts sales, special events, and community spaces.  It will become the epicenter of our region's food system. 

The City and the Local Food Committee are currently working with a consulting team from Project for Public Spaces, inc. to develop a business plan that will help guide decisions on the location, features, vendors, size, and operating plan for the market. The process of creating this business plan will include numerous opportunities for Madison area residents and stakeholders to share their ideas and opinions on the project.
