The Fondy Farmers Market is a century old market and Milwaukee’s largest and most diverse farmers market, as well as the springboard for Fondy Food Center’s healthy food efforts.  The open air market creates space for the community—shoppers of all ages, organization representatives, artists, and performers—to connect with each other, and the more than 40 farmers and local food producers who sell at the Market from May through November.   Tens of thousands of shoppers visit the market each year —primarily drawing from  on Milwaukee’s North Side, but welcoming visitors from across the region.
