Typical food offerings include bakery items, meats, produce, seafood, soup, cheese, spices, wine, coffee, and candies. When the market opened in 2005, it focused primarily on selling raw ingredients, but over time, organizers found that vendors were more successful selling freshly prepared foods. Other vendors offer flowers, gifts, and apparel. The market also includes community space for events.
The Milwaukee Public Market building was designed by The Kubala Washatko Architects (TKWA) from Cedarburg, Wisconsin and opened in 2005. The firm states that the steel, glass, and brick material chosen for the building "honors the industrial history of the Third Ward." The initial development cost approximately $10 million and was funded with a mix of private and public funds.
