A sophisticated new shopping experience, Madison Markets is located in a renovated group of turn-of-the-century cotton warehouses in the heart of historic Madison, Georgia. Madison Markets contains over 20,000 square-feet of shopping. With 75 dealers offering one-of-a-kind architectural pieces, rugs, and a variety of upscale American and European antiques. The variety is endless, come see for yourself.
Named to honor President James Madison, and known as “the town Sherman refused to burn,” with its tree-shaded streets, Madison exudes the past. Nineteenth century buildings and brick sidewalks radiate outward from a town square representative of a by-gone era. The sound of horses’ hooves drawing carriages can still be heard on the bustling streets, and local farmers still bring their produces to an early Saturday morning markets.
History of the Site
Madison Markets is situated just a few feet from the spring that was once the center of the original settlement. It is also next to Madison’s historic cemeteries, near the antebellum train depot, and a part of a site that contained a blacksmith shop and the Madison Variety Works, a factory, which produced the diverse and complex architectural details that still graces many of Madison’s historic residences.
