Madison public market plans moving forward

Posted:

MADISON (WKOW) -- The process to develop a public market in Madison is moving forward.

Tuesday, members of the consulting firm hired by the city met with potential vendors.

One of the concerns that's come up is how the market will impact the Dane County Farmer's Market.

City officials say they want the markets to support each other, not compete.

"We hope that the public market can build upon the Dane County Farmer's Market, whether it be adding processing space, providing food hub distribution space, providing other opportunities to engage the community with local food," says Matthew Mikolajewski.

The next step of this process will be the consulting team putting together a vision for the market.

After that, they'll look at potential locations.
