Public Market moves ahead

The Madison Common Council approved a collaboration agreement that allows Meyer, Scherer & Rockcastle (MSR) of Minneapolis to move forward with the design of the Madison Public Market, according to a release.

MSR was selected out of 11 firms in 2018, and the location of the market has since changed to the corner of First Street and E. Johnson Street.

The agreement means the Madison Public Market Foundation is now free to select vendors and hire staff. Opening is scheduled for 2021.
