A public market will officially be coming to Madison. Now the question is, where will it go?

After getting positive feedback about the idea from farmers, small business owners and other interested entrepreneurs, Mayor Paul Soglin announced Wednesday, he wants the community's input about which locations in Madison can best fulfill the vision for the market.

"We're just hoping that anyone who has any kind of interest at all, doesn't have to be a wholesaler or a retailer, just has to be someone who enjoys eating or browsing, we're hoping everyone comes and participates," Mayor Soglin said.

The market will be an indoor, year-round facility that will have more of a "district" feel. It will feature local food and produce, plus other amenities like restaurants and entertainment.
