"The Madison Public Market is an opportunity for our community to promote and support the growth of strong family businesses within diverse communities in Madison. Once the Market is open, not only will we enjoy these businesses' unique culinary offerings, but the Market will also generate $16-$20M in annual sales, significantly growing our local food and local business economy. Our spring Taste event will highlight several of these new and accelerating businesses," shared Mayor Paul Soglin.
