According to a recent report released by the American College of Sports Medicine, Milwaukee far exceeds the national average for farmers markets per capita. The Westown Farmers' Market is the city’s largest and oldest, featuring more than 60 vendors in the heart of Downtown. The market opens for the season Wednesday and, with the exception of July 2, runs every Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. through Oct. 29.

Early in the season look for crafts from local artists, plants for your garden and prepared food from vendors in place of the bountiful produce of the late summer. Music and entertainment are also on hand, and the Third Ward and other attractions are a short walk away, making for a relaxing afternoon Downtown.
