How to Create Successful Markets: Starting Markets in Your Neighborhoods

How to Create Successful Markets: Starting Markets in Your Neighborhoods

Project for Public Spaces

Designed for professionals and non-professionals alike, with an interested in creating or improving a public market in their city, from permanent indoor markets to community farmers markets, and everything in between. Based on PPS' extensive public market experience, and inspired by our ongoing program of conferences and research, participants will look at case studies and explore the market planning process, including goal setting, concept development, economic feasibility, management, site selection and design.

Enrollment is limited to 30 participants in order to promote a deep understanding of what makes markets successful, as well as PPS' innovative methods for analyzing them. Past participants include mayors and community development officials, neighborhood organizers and market sponsors. During this one and a half day course, participants will work in small teams to observe and analyze a variety of markets in Manhattan that illustrate pertinent issues, give insights and encourage them to see the sites from a user's point of view.
