The James Beard Public Market takes another baby step toward actually existing: Per a press release, the Public Market executive directors have hired a fundraiser and consultant, Lucy Buchanan, who will "provide execution and oversight for the $25 million capital campaign." The long-stewing project — slated for the West Morrison Bridgehead — has been in the works since late 2008/early 2009. The hiring update is the first from the project since it officially began fundraising efforts in summer 2012. [EaterWire]
