MWFM Vendor Information

We encourage new vendors to apply so that you can introduce your business to us, however we do have our schedule set for the season so your business will be put on a waitlist.
Applications for the 2021-2022 season are available here.

Our market honors seniority, product variety & diversity, distance to market, and community representation. We get more applications from farms and businesses every year than we can accept into the market. We want to help people eat local longer, so we certainly are looking for local farms and businesses that can help us meet our vision. We are especially interested in products made from local farm ingredients that do not compete with, or duplicate, the value-added products made by the farmers themselves.

Fondy is in regular communication with City of Milwaukee's Health Department and with our partners at the Deer District to create a COVID Safe Operating Plan in alignment with the City of Milwaukee's Health Department and Centers for Disease Control recommendations.

Masks continue to be strongly encouraged for all at the MWFM to help keep our community safe. Free masks are available on-site.

In January 2022 we implemented the following to help curb spread of the Omicron variant:

  • New layout and more spaced-out vendor stalls
  • One-way traffic going counter-clockwise (look for signage)
  • No on-site seating or gathering
  • Prepared food and drink are to be consumed off-site & no sampling
