Milwaukee Public Market District
Milwaukee, Wisconsin (1999-2002, 2005)
Market Ventures developed the concept and tested the feasibility of a new, year-round indoor market in the Historic Third Ward of downtown Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Located within the Commission Row area, which functioned as a wholesale produce market for 100 years, the Milwaukee Public Market is a new, stand alone market building with approximately 25 permanent tenants, plus an outdoor farmers' market shed. The public market district includes restaurants and related retail. Construction began in 2004 and the Market opened in July 2005. To support the Market's opening, MVI provided assistance with marketing and conducted vendor training.
