CITY MARKET
1909
Robert L. Wright
 The City Market reflects the active civic improvement work in Madison at the turn of the century. Like other public projects, the Market was intended to enhance the advantages of city life. The building design by Madison architect Robert L. Wright is a unique example of the Prairie School style. Set out on an I-plan, its horizontality is emphasized by wide roof overhangs and by cement stringcourses through bichrome brick walls.
Designated July 18, 1977
 Madison Landmarks Commission
The property is located on northbound North Blount Street, at its intersection with East Mifflin Street, at 101 North Blount Street, Madison, Wisconsin 53703.

The marker is No. 50 in a series of markers erected by the Madison Landmarks Commission.
