City to unveil new plans for upcoming $13 million Madison Public Market
MADISON, Wis. — After years of planning and an extensive process of gathering public input, Thursday night is your chance to see the city’s design for the upcoming Madison Public Market. Once complete, the market will be the largest in the Midwest, attracting more than 500,000 visitors each year.
At the meeting, Madisonians will get a first look at the mix and layout of the merchants at the market, the event spaces, outdoor plaza, and much more. City staff will also give an update on how you can get to the new market, at 200 N. First St., in the city’s soon-to-be-empty Fleet Services Building. They’ll talk about the $53 million project’s “go green” features, too, including solar panels, innovative water conservation techniques, and natural ventilation.
If you go to the meeting, you’ll see poster-size images of the plans, hear a Q&A session, and have an opportunity to ask one-on-one questions about the designs in smaller, breakout groups. The meeting begins at 6 p.m. in room 215 of the Madison Municipal Building. It will be streamed online for anyone who can’t attend.
More than 1,000 people attended the city’s first public market open house in May.
The Madison Public Market is on track to open two years from now, in the fall of 2021 .
