Milwaukee Markets:

Growing Power Winter Farmers Market 

Growing Power Winter Farmers Market

This market is on Saturdays through the fall and winter season! Located at our Growing Power warehouse in Butler, WI at 13111 W. Silver Spring Drive. The hours are from 10 am- 2 pm. We started this market in the fall of 2013. We're now able to grow many of your favorite vegetables year round, so we thought a winter market is long overdue! We also have items like our fresh eggs, honey and hand rolled butter. Plus, we have other vendors who provide their value added items as well; things like specialty popcorn, natural soaps and detergents, a Milwaukee bakery and more produce vendors!

This market runs October 26-April 19, excluding the following dates: November 30, December 28, January 18, February 15 and March 22 (due to holidays and Growing Power workshops).

Fox Point Farmer's Market (vendor since 2003)

Located at Stormonth School in Fox Point, 1 block north of Good Hope Road, six blocks east of Port Washington Road at Mall and Lombardy. This market is every Saturday.

Mitchell Street Farmers Market
This market is every Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday. It even has it's own facebook page! Growing Power has partnered with the Freedom Now! Collaborative to manage the Milwaukee Southside Mitchell Street Farmers Market, which is based in one of Milwaukee’s most food insecure neighborhoods, i.e., in 2005, the Mitchell Street Farmers Market received the highest volume of WIC and FMNP checks in the state.  Now entering its third year of management, Growing Power is ensuring access to safe, healthy, affordable produce for hungry families, while at the same time supporting local sustainable agriculture. Events, education, nutrition information, and widespread community support make the Mitchell Street Farmers Market the "original" southside market. Visit the Mitchell Street Farmers Market to help support local agriculture. 

Located just west of the Historic Mitchell Street Neighborhood at the corner of Mitchell Street and Muskego Avenue.  WIC checks accepted. Stop by for fresh, local, healthy, affordable produce from Milwaukee area farmers.
