towns across the US are rediscovering the benefits of public markets.
At this workshop you'll:
* 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;
* Meet other folks from around the country working on a variety of
public market projects

mayors, planning officials, community development officials, funders,
