There's simply nothing better than a farmers market in Wisconsin.

It's the perfect opportunity for local growers to show off their goods, while consumers get a refreshing break from strolling the aisles in the supermarket. Throw in some live music, crafts, fresh flowers and a gentle breeze and you've got yourself a homegrown good time.

SNAP, WIC & Senior vouchers

A growing number of farmers markets across Milwaukee accept federal nutrition benefits such as SNAP, WIC and Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program vouchers. The Milwaukee Farmers Market Coalition, facilitated by Fondy Food Center and FoodWIse, publishes a printable list of markets that accept benefits (updates are available in June each year), as well as an interactive map of locations.

At participating markets, customers with SNAP can swipe their Quest cards at the market info booth to receive farmers market currency that can be spent at individual vendor stands. The WIC and Senior vouchers can be used directly at vendor stands for Wisconsin grown produce.
