Madison is famous for great shopping, amazing food and a talented art scene and now these three community assets have come together again for a unique urban experience. The Madison Night Market is a celebration of Madison's unique and inspiring creative culture. Vendors showcase handmade products, local art, artisan gifts, and prepackaged foods. The event includes live music, special visiting food carts and pop-up restaurant experiences. The Madison Night Market is FREE to attend.  


The Market is hosted by the downtown property and business owners. Downtown Madison is home to a wide variety of local retail, restaurant and service businesses and more than 50 of these businesses are participating in the market by staying open later and offering a wide variety of special events and sales. Visit to find out more about these participating retailers and their special offers. Another 90+ local vendors make for a great mix of shopping and entertainment.
