West Allis Farmers Market

Farmers Market Arch PhotoThe award-winning West Allis Farmers Market is open from the first Saturday in May through the Saturday after Thanksgiving. It is open on Tuesdays and Thursdays from noon to 6 p.m. and on Saturdays from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. We open later in the day to allow the farmers to bring only the freshest produce, picked that morning, to the market!

Shop the West Allis Farmers Market for seasonal fruits and vegetables, annual and perennial plants, fresh-cut flowers, locally raised eggs, meats, honey, and maple syrup, and prepared foods like baked goods and apple cider. 

The West Allis Farmers Market hosts numerous community events throughout the year, including the Makers Market, Food Truck Fridays, National Night Out, and the Christkindlmarkt.

The Market will open for the 2020 season on Saturday, May 2.

Snap Program

The West Allis Health Department is pleased to announce implementation of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), also known as FoodShare, at the Farmers Market.

We are committed to increasing access to fresh fruits and vegetables for low-income families and to providing this additional value-added revenue source for our vendors.

Persons eligible for FoodShare benefits are able to purchase tokens with their benefits card at the Market and utilize the Market to purchase fresh items that are nutritious for them and their families.

Any insider tips I need to know?

  • Talk to the vendors and other shoppers. If you see a vegetable you’ve never tried, don’t be afraid to ask the vendor or the shopper next to you for tips on storing or preparing it. 
  • Come often – the selection at the Market is different each day! 
  • Come early – vendors are not required to stay until close of the Market. Some may leave early if they sell out of items or choose to close their booths earlier in the day.
