Training: How to Create Successful Markets

      Posted On: February 16, 2008

To be truly successful, markets need four crucial elements: the right mix of vendors and products; a strong sense of place; solid economic and operational underpinnings; and a firm commitment to the surrounding community. The Project for Public Spaces will host a How to Create Successful Markets training course on May 16-17, 2008. Through this training course, participants will learn about each of these elements and more through workshops and on-site tours of New York City’s open-air farmers markets, indoor public markets, flea markets and urban farms. The workshop will cover:

  • Benefits of markets;
  • Ingredients of successful markets;
  • Introduction to Placemaking;
  • Market planning process;
  • Community engagement;
  • Partnership building;
  • Sustainable market operations; and
  • Market management.
