The best of local in the best of locale.

25 YEARS promoting farm fresh and local food along the shores of Lake Michigan, we present the South Shore Farmers’ Market, Milwaukee.

JUNE 17 – OCT 28, 2023


Welcome to the 2023 South Shore Farmers’ Market Season! We are excited to celebrate 25 years, and to share a summer and fall full of local, fresh food from over 40 regional vendors, a full slate of music from diverse, homegrown talent, and opportunities to connect with friends and neighbors in beautiful South Shore Park. Join us Saturdays from 8 am to Noon, June 17 – October 28, 2023.

Be sure to mark your calendar, too, for Saturday, July 29, for our 25th Anniversary Celebration. Festivities will include cake, music, and a special Community Day Fair.  We’ll invite non-profits serving Bay View to set up tables and share all the great things they do in service of  the community. If you’d like to participate as a nonprofit, please reach out to us through the contact us form below, and we will get back to you with details.  

We’d like to extend a big thank you to our sponsors Tenuta’s Italian Restaurant and Trinidad Home Remodeling.  We simply couldn’t put on this market without your generous support!  Thanks also to our managers and the planning committee listed below. This market is a labor of love.  Thank you for your dedication over these past 25 years. And thank you to all of our Bay View neighbors and friends from near and far for showing up each Saturday! 

See you at the market – and be sure to connect with us on Facebook and Instagram for up-to-date information and to share your South Shore Farmers’ Market experiences.  Here’s to the next 25 years!

South Shore Farmers’ Market (SSFM) was conceived 25 years ago, as an extension of Friends of South Shore Park, and founders had two main priorities: preserve and create community in South Shore Park and build connections between urban residents and regional agriculture and small local food producers. In some ways, not much has changed since the early days, lending to part is part of its charm. Each Saturday, June – October, rain or shine, the market brings together the best of local in the best locale. Quality vendor products with a focus on local agriculture, botanicals, packaged food and beverage, and ready-made products have continued to make this one of the most popular markets in the region. Cheers to another 25 years and beyond!
