Milwaukee Public Market: Open for the Holidays

The Milwaukee Public Market is open to the public with a renewed commitment to public safety and health during the pandemic. Vendors and management are administering temperature and health screenings to all employees in each shift, seating is limited on the second floor, more hand sanitizing stations have been added and HVAC filters have been installed to improve air filtration. Some vendors are offering curbside pickup options.

An iconic landmark for all, the Milwaukee Public Market is chock-full of local foods and flavors to try or buy from independent merchants with artisan ethnic products and an assortment of meals made fresh to order. What’s more, you can find an original gift here for everyone this holiday season: aromatic spices, wines, Wisconsin cheese, iconic local apparel, and oils and vinegars, to name a few.

The mission of the Milwaukee Public Market is to promote a one-of-a-kind way for consumers to shop, cook, experience and enjoy food while supporting and promoting locally owned food artisans and purveyors. For years, the market has been a space for people to gather, learn, enjoy fresh flavors and be entertained. Though the market was temporarily closed and lacks the normal hustle and bustle of crowds for social distancing reasons, it continues to provide a delightful experience for all. When you go, don’t forget to pick up the latest copy of Natural Awakenings, which can be found in several spots within the market. Shop local. Visit the Milwaukee Public Market today.
