2018 Summer Farmers Markets

0
One of the best parts of summer is the availability of fresh, locally grown produce available at a variety of farmers markets. Supporting our local farmers and community is very important to the well-being of the local economy, and an added bonus, here is an overview of the many farmers markets available to us in the summer!

Mondays:

The Pulaski Street Market will host its annual farmers market from 3-5 pm at the corner of Wisconsin and Pulaski Streets. The dates are June 25th – October 1st.

Tuesdays:

The Village of Howard market is back!  This year the market will be on Tuesdays, and will run from 4:00-7:00 pm. The first week of the market is June 12th, and will continue until September 25th. This market offers a variety of everything: locally grown produce, meats, specialty goods, crafts and a variety of food vendors.

Wednesdays:

One of the biggest markets in the Fox Valley area that occurs on Wednesdays is the Farmers Market On Broadway. The market begins the May 30th, and runs from 3:00-8:00pm every Wednesday thru September. While there are plenty of local produce vendors, there are also many food vendors and beer and wine stands. There is also a weekly music feature. This is one market you can truly make an evening of, all while buying your produce. However, this market is very busy, so it is not easily navigated with a stroller. 

Thursdays:

There are four markets that occur on Thursdays, and all are very family friendly.

Allouez and Bellin Health Farmers’ Market has been CANCELLED this year. Please see the note on their website. 

The Definitely De Pere market is located at 101 N Broadway, and runs from 4:00-8:00 pm. The market will start up June 21st and continue every Thursday until  September 27th. The De Pere market not only offers fresh produce, but also weekly events such as a kid’s market, education opportunities, or entertainment venues. 

Market on Military runs from June 7th-October 25th every Thursday 3-7 pm. Located in Green Bay Plaza parking lot. Don’t miss out!

The Oneida Farmers Market is located at N7332 Water Circle Place in Oneida, and is every Thursday from noon until 6:00pm. The market will start on June 21st, and continue every Thursday until October 4th. This market contains a variety of local goods, as well as handmade crafts. 

The Town of Gillett also offers a market on Thursdays, at the Downtown Gillett Square. The market runs every Thursday from 4:00-6:00 pm and will begin on June 7th. Fresh flowers, fresh produce, and local crafts give plenty of variety in this small town market! 

Saturdays:

There are two fantastic options for Saturday Farmer’s markets, and it can truly be a weekend routine for your family. 

The Downtown Green Bay farmers market is located on S. Washington St every Saturday from 7 am – noon. This year, the market will begin on May 26th and continue through October 27th, making it the longest running market in the Green Bay area. There are breakfast options, produce, crafts, fresh bread and more! 

The Downtown Appleton market is always a huge attraction. It boosts the most vendors of any market in the state besides that of the Madison Farmers Market. It is also a year-round market, occurring indoors November-May, and then outdoors June-October. The market has a great deal of variety, and plenty for the whole family to do, see, and buy. The market is from 8am – 12:30 pm and is located on College Avenue when it is outside. 

Festival Foods Markets

Several Festival Foods grocery stores have farmers markets. The De Pere location starts on Tuesday, July 10th and runs from 7 am to noon. The Suamico location will hold the market on Sundays beginning on July 15th from 7 am to noon. A complete list can be found on their website:
