UW Extension offering Farmers Market Tours

The Wisconsin Farmers Market Association and UW Cooperative Extension will offers four Farmers Market Tours this summer, which are open to Kenosha County residents.

While designed to offer farmers market managers an opportunity to learn from other managers while at a particular market, anyone interested in the organization and management of a farmers market would be welcome to attend.

The market tours will be held at the following markets:

  • Historic Downtown Burlington Farmers Market Thursday July 19th, 3:30 – 5:30 pm.
  • Downtown Appleton Farm Market Saturday, August 4th, 9am – 11am.
  • Dane County Wednesday Market, Madison Wednesday, August 22nd, 10am – noon.
  • Fondy Farmers Market, Milwaukee Saturday, September 15th, 10am – noon.

Participants can elect to attend one market tour or visit as many as they wish, however, space will be limited to 15 people per tour. Market tours will include an overview of the market including the history and mission along with unique aspects of the market. A tour of the market will be included with discussion of vendor and product mix, activities and more. As part of the tour, a meal will be included, featuring local foods, where networking and questions can be addressed. The cost for each tour is $15 or $12 for members of the Wisconsin Farmers Market Manager Association.
