Fresh & Fun: Local Farmers Markets
There is nothing we love more than the smell of fresh flowers and the hustle and bustle of a Farmers Market. Pour a coffee, pack up the kids, and head over to one of our favorite area Farmers Markets for a fun morning activity. You never know what you might find!
**Remember, most vendors only accept cash, so don’t forget to bring some small bills along.
**Most Farmers Markets do not allow pets due to Health Code Regulations, so leave Scruffy at home for this one.
Downtown West Bend
Saturdays: 7:30am – 11:00 am
May 21 – October 29
215 N Main Street
Voted 1 of the top 10 in the world by Vogue magazine in 2014!
This Farmers Market is a personal favorite, and with over 150 vendors it is the largest in the area. There is something for everyone with a variety of produce, dairy, meat, spices, and herb vendors. There are multiple areas with live music, and since Main Street closes down for this event, we have found it to be very stroller friendly! We love to stop by for fresh flowers on Saturday mornings. It is definitely worth the Saturday morning drive out to West Bend!
*Tip- arrive early. This market takes us at least 45 minutes to walk through.
Hartford Farmers Market
Saturdays: 7am – Noon
May 7 – November 12
147 N Rural St (Parking Lot of the Hartford Rec Center)
This is one of the longest running Farmers Markets since it is open early May until mid November. It’s a great place to visit on a crisp fall day when the other markets have closed down for the season.
Thiensville Village Market
Tuesdays: 9:00am – 3:00pm
June 14 – October 25
Village Park 250 Elm Street
Another favorite, this market is FUN because it’s in the park! Live music and a nice variety of food and products with 46 different vendors. Take a stroll down by the river when you’re done, or sit down and enjoy your coffee while the kids have fun climbing on the nearby jungle gym.
Germantown Farmers Market
Saturdays: 8am – Noon
May 7 – October 22
N112 W17001 Mequon Road (Parking lot of Village Hall)
This market is on the smaller side, but with a convenient location right off of Mequon road, it’s great for a quick stop during Saturday morning errands.
Menomonee Falls Farmers Market
Wednesdays: 8:00am – 3:00pm
May – October
Sundays: 9:00am – 2:00pm
August – October
N88 W16750 Garfield Drive (Parking lot of North Junior High Campus)
You’ve got options with this market since it is open both Wednesdays and Sundays! 27 different vendors and parking is also pretty convenient at this event.
Sussex Farmers Market
June 5 – October 15
Armory Park – W239N5664 Maple Ave.
This market was new in 2015, so it’s a bit on the smaller side, but there is a good variety of vendors. Each week there is a sponsored kids activity booth and plenty of park space for the kids to explore after you’re done shopping. Once a month Ashtree Healing hosts Yoga in the Park, so this might also be a fun one for Mom’s (or Dad’s!) Morning Out!
Grafton Farmers Market (And Storytime!)
Thursdays: 10am – 6pm
July 7th – August 25th
1950 Washington St (Parking Lot of Grafton HS)
Make an afternoon out of this market! The market offers $5.00 meals (Brat/Hamburger/Pulled Pork, Chips & Water/Soda) and an outdoor storytime for the kids at 1:30pm.
Cedarburg Farmers Market
Fridays: 9am – 2pm
June – October
W62 N546 Washington Ave (Parking lot of Cedarburg Cultural Center)
This market gives us a great excuse to visit our favorite little town – Cedarburg. Stop by Wayne’s Drive-In on your way out for some old fashioned burgers and fries!
