ABOUT Fondy’s Farmers Market Work
Fondy Food Center started as a way to ensure that Fondy Farmers Market (a market with a history that reaches back to 1917) lasted to serve future generations – to fill the need for fresh food in Milwaukee’s Northside.
Now Fondy operates more than one market, a farm, and now has begun work with farmers markets and partners across the county to ensure that ALL Milwaukeeans have access to fresh, local food.
Fondy Farmers Market is the centerpiece of Fondy Food Center’s efforts to promote access to wholesome food in central Milwaukee and beyond.
Fondy Food Center believes that small family farms are an essential component to growing a socially just, economically viable and environmentally sustainable local food systems. In operating farmers markets, our goal is to support small entrepreneurs and stimulate the local economy. We are committed to making educational and economic connections between urban residents and local farmers.
