Downtown Milwaukee’s oldest market adds new vendors and music

Milwaukee, WI—Beginning Wednesday, June 6th, Downtown Milwaukee’s oldest and largest open-air market, the Westown Farmer’s Market, returns to Zeidler Union Square. Westown Association will welcome vendors, shoppers, lunch-goers and musicians back to the square, located at 301 W. Michigan Street, to celebrate the opening day of the market’s summer season.

 

Shoppers can enjoy a variety of art, lunch and prepared food vendors every Wednesday 10am-3pm starting June 6th, with the addition of Wisconsin-grown seasonal produce as it becomes available throughout the market’s 2012 season, ending October 31st. This year’s market will see an increase in prepared food as at least ten new food vendors will be participating. New vendors include Jake’s Deli, Apple Holler, Kasana Concierge Gourmet, Aleka’s Kitchen and Juiced, among many others. For a list of all vendors expected at this year’s market, please visit http://www.westown.org/westown/farmers+market/2012+vendors/default.asp.

 

The market also has a full schedule of music and events for patrons to enjoy. See schedule below for the performance lineup. Save on gas and parking and take the Downtown Trolley starting May 30th. The trolley stops outside many summer events, including the Westown Farmer’s Market. Visit www.milwaukeedowntown.com for more information.
