This was the scene recently (near closing time-- usually it's bustling with people) at the Milwaukee Public Market, a magnet location in the city's historic Third Ward. We have one of the most successful farmers' markets in the country in Madison, but that only operates on the Capitol Square in the warmer months (the winter indoor market is held in two different locations, neither perfect). Proposals for an indoor facility have been kicking around for years without getting off the ground. Madison's (Former) Mayor Dave is a fan and makes the case in Why Madison needs a year-round public market in this week's Isthmus.

Looked like rain for sure this morning -- relief for the drought that has parched lawns and canceled most Fourth of July fireworks in the area, though not Rhythm & Booms and Elver Park. But it didn't rain. Not a drop.
