About the Market

Located directly across from the beautiful Art Deco Town of Lake Water Tower at 6th and Howard, the Garden District Farmers’ Market is an all-volunteer organized and run farmers’ market on Milwaukee’s south side. The market aims to bring our community closer to the farmers of Wisconsin who produce a wonderful variety of high-quality food during the summer. Though we are not just limited to farmers; we also welcome producers who create unique products locally.

Upon visiting the market for the first time, you will immediately be struck by the beauty of the open-air brick square that has been created specifically with the market in mind. The square features beautiful landscaping, bench seating, and porous pavement that harvests and provides rainwater to the adjacent community garden located just to the north. The most popular feature of the grounds, the babbling stream, is also fed by the harvested rainwater.

The market is proudly presented by the Garden District Neighborhood Association, a non-profit organization aimed at establishing and maintaining Milwaukee’s 13th District as a community working to beautify its neighborhood through gardening and landscaping.
