Apologies for cross-postings.


Please note that there is still time to register for Project for Public
Spaces' "How to Create
Successful Public Markets" workshop, May 11-12, 2006 in New York City.
Register online at



How to Create Successful Markets is a two-day workshop led by our own
public market experts Steve Davies and David O'Neil. Cities and towns
across the US are rediscovering the benefits of public markets.

At this workshop, you will:

Learn how to start a market in your neighborhood or town; look at case
studies and explore the market planning process, including goal-setting,
concept development, economic feasibility, management, site selection
and design; visit and analyze some of New York's most famous markets -
both indoor and outdoor; and meet other folks from around the country
working on a variety of public market projects.

The registration fee covers two days of tuition, including tours,
in-depth presentations and discussions, on-site evaluation, case
studies, and training support materials. Light lunch and refreshments
will be provided on both Thursday and Friday. There is a reception
Thursday evening (included) and an optional dinner Friday night (please
note, the dinner is not included in the fee.)

Sign up now and join a small, dynamic group of people which in past
workshops has included mayors, planning officials, community development
officials, neighborhood organizers and market sponsors.

About the instructors:

STEVE DAVIES, as senior vice president of PPS, has directed nearly 500
major projects in the U.S and abroad and is sought out as one of the
foremost thought leaders in public markets. He oversees the activities
of PPS's Public Market Program, where he currently works on a
multi-million dollar grant-making and policy initiative for public
markets and farmers markets with the Ford Foundation and W.K. Kellogg

A specialist in all phases of market development, DAVID O'NEIL has
worked on over 200 market projects around the world and has directed
four international public market conferences, the most recent in
October, 2005 in Washington DC. David recently published "Reading
Terminal Market: An Illustrated History," a beautifully illustrated
narrative about one of the country's largest public markets located in
Philadelphia, PA.
