Boardman Clark, farmers step up for Madison Public Market
Boardman Clark has pledged a commitment of $250,000 over a five-year period, while the Dairy Farmers of Wisconsin will partner to create an interactive Wisconsin dairy experience space that will showcase the state’s cheesemaking heritage. With initial contributions to the Market, the organization is closing in on the first $1 million raised in its capital campaign.
Richard Heinemann, managing partner at Boardman Clark, says the Madison Public Market project is about more than creating a space to sell goods. “It is an investment in the community, a chance to empower underrepresented entrepreneurs, and a great venue to sample Madison’s diverse foods, crafts, and culture,” he says in a press release.
