Healthy Food Access

Our 2017 Farmers Market list is here! Many Milwaukee farmers markets welcome your federal nutrition benefits. Find out which ones accept Quest card/SNAP/EBT/FoodShare as well as WIC and Senior vouchers HERE – or by clicking the image below.

Download the PDF list to print and share at your business with your customers or elsewhere in the community! Please contact Meg at mkilkenny@fondymarket.org if your market accepts benefits and would like to be included on this list.

Fondy Food Center was created to ensure the supply of healthy food to Milwaukee’s Northside residents.  Now Fondy is excited to embark on work to create healthy, local food in neighborhoods across Milwaukee!

The Milwaukee Farmers Market Connection—Healthy, Local Food Access for ALL Milwaukeeans. This project, funded by the Healthier Wisconsin Partnership Program, aims to convene interested farmers markets, organizations and individuals to increase access to, and utilization of, farmers markets by building capacity to serve low income consumers and by attracting diverse clientele with the long-term impact of increasing produce intake within Milwaukee area communities.
