On October 11, the Friends of the Madison Public Market hosted over 600 visitors in a lovely space off East Washington where 20 merchants and artists shared the first taste of what we can expect from the future of this very promising project. 

I volunteered to take some photos of the event and had a blast grabbing some shots of the vendors talking to their visitors and even some odd photos I hope the Public Market organizers can use in future marketing materials. Every time I take photos at an event, I learn something new about photography. And usually add some new gear to my wish list (hello wide-angle lens and monopod!). 

More photos are available on the Friends Facebook page
