Milwaukee Area Farmers’ Markets

The weather is finally getting warmer, and with the warm weather, comes the excitement of farmers’ markets for many people. Shopping at the Milwaukee-area farmers’ markets has always been a wonderful community experience, where you can meet your neighbors, friends, and farmers, and where more of your dollar will stay in the community.

This summer, you can expect that community feel to still be a bit different as markets across Southeastern Wisconsin implement guidelines to keep both vendors and shoppers safe due to the ongoing battle against COVID-19. In general, the goal is to support amazing local vendors AND keep everyone as safe and healthy as possible, so be sure to take the time to learn about the safety protocols at each farmers’ market before you go. 

Milwaukee Area Farmers’ Markets in 2021

Farmers’ markets are an essential business and supporting them is more important than ever! It’s been a really hard year for everyone and your local farmers’ market managers are working hard to make the experience as pleasant as possible for shoppers and vendors alike.

Though some things will still look a little different than we remember, you will still be able to purchase fresher, more local produce and product while supporting your local farmers and small businesses. If you want to limit your contact this summer, the farmers’ markets will be a good place to shop as buying directly from farmers/vendors at open-air farmers’ markets eliminates the extra point of contacts that you may find in a grocery store.

To keep you safe this summer, many farmers markets are implementing additional guidelines. Though each market will have different rules, some of the common ones you will find this summer can are found below:

    • Stay home if you are sick of you are in a high-risk group.
    • You will find most vendors wearing face-masks, and face coverings are highly recommended for customers, even outdoors.
    • Maintain social distancing. Vendor stalls will be faced farther apart and customers will be encouraged to wait their turn instead of congregating at stalls.
    • Customers are discouraged from bringing their own bags and vendors will be asked to provide bags for their products.
    • Customers will be discouraged from handling produce/products before buying; vendors are encouraged to bag/pack purchases.
    • Additional hand sanitizing stations may be found throughout the markets and vendors will be asked to sanitize and clean high touch areas throughout the market.
    • Many markets will not have food samples, and most food items will be packed to go.
    • Some markets will not have live music or entertainment this summer.

Take note: An increasing number of farmers markets across Milwaukee County accept federal nutrition benefits (i.e.: SNAP, WIC + Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program vouchers). The Milwaukee Farmers Market Coalition, facilitated by Fondy Food Center, publishes an annual list of markets that accept benefits.
