The Fondy Farmers Market is a century old market and Milwaukee’s largest and most diverse farmers market, as well as the springboard for Fondy Food Center’s healthy food efforts. The open air market creates space for the community—shoppers of all ages, organization representatives, artists, and performers—to connect with each other, and the more than 40 farmers and local food producers who sell at the Market from May through November. Tens of thousands of shoppers visit the market each year —primarily drawing from on Milwaukee’s North Side, but welcoming visitors from across the region.
Fondy is a nationally recognized leader in connecting low-income people with the benefits of farmers markets. It was the first market in the state to accept SNAP/EBT and offers the Market Match program -which doubles the produce purchasing power for shoppers using their federal nutrition benefits.
Nowhere else in Milwaukee will you see such a diverse mix of customers and farmers, making Fondy Farmers Market a true intersection of food and community. There is a true air of celebration at the market—with live music, good food, and festive entertainment. Fondy’s events promote health through heritage, such as the weekly “Seasonal Soul” Cooking Demonstration, which features neighborhood chefs cooking up family recipes featuring the market’s seasonal produce.
