Farmers Market

Fresh Produce at the Market
The 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 6:00 pm and on Saturdays from 1:00 pm to 6:00 pm. We open later in the day to allow the farmers to bring only the freshest produce, picked that morning, to the market. Farmers may leave earlier if all produce has been sold.

A wide range of produce arrives at the market throughout the year. The early season brings bedding plants, radishes, asparagus, and rhubarb. Strawberries and raspberries arrive in June as well as peas and snap beans. Corn arrives about a week after July 4 along with many other squashes, zucchini and herb plants. The late season brings fresh apples and cider. Chickens and fresh eggs are always available. If you can't pick it yourself, the West Allis Farmers Market is your best bet.

History of the Farmers Market
Farmers Market
Established in approximately 1919, the West Allis Farmers Market has been a source of fine fresh produce for generations of families. Grandparents and parents have brought their children and relatives to shop at one of the largest, if not the oldest, established Farmers Markets in southeastern Wisconsin. One reason that the West Allis Market shines above the rest is that all the farmers at the market have to raise what they sell. If you want only the freshest produce grown in Wisconsin, shop the West Allis Farmers Market.

The market is the largest open-air market in the Metropolitan Milwaukee area. Its initial establishment reflects the European practice of shopping daily in such markets that was familiar to many area residents.
