HOW TO CREATE SUCCESSFUL MARKETS
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 and the
positive impacts they have on communities.
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 will also be a
Thursday evening (included), which will give you a good chance to meet
your fellow participants as well as with PPS leaders and staff.
