Thank you so much for your interest in the Fondy Farmers Market! Our non-profit Fondy was started to support the long-term sustainability of the market and we work hard every year to find ways to support our vendors and customers. In 2020, we saw over 25,000 customers visit the market, over $72,000 in SNAP sales, with an additional $34,000 in produce incentives spent at the market.
Our 2021 VENDOR APPLICATION can be found HERE!
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic: Farmers Markets are “essential businesses”. Fondy Food Center is working to create a COVID-19 Safe Operations plan and we expect all vendors to comply with the plan once it is published. We pledge to do everything we can to operate a safe and healthy market space where vendors can still sell their farmed and locally made products, while giving customers access to fresh, healthy, and local food. We will accept applications from anyone who is growing/raising their own food, making their own food, or creating their own locally-made products.
We have create a Safe Operating Plan in partnership with the Milwaukee Health Department that includes moving many vendors to new stalls to allow physical distancing, not allowing on-site consumption of food, and offering guidance to customers and vendors on how to safely attend the farmers market.
Special Events, Music, Cooking Demos, Yoga, and Community Booths will be on hold until further notice.
Since we’re currently working off-site, we don’t have hard copies of applications readily available. Please email Katie Hassemer at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need assistance with the application.
