A wide range of produce arrives at the market throughout the year. The early season brings bedding plants, radishes, asparagus, and rhubarb. Strawberries and raspberries arrive in June as well as zucchini, squash, peas, snap beans. Corn arrives about a week after July 4 along with many other squashes and herb plants. The late season brings fresh apples, squash, and root vegetables. If you can’t pick it yourself, the West Allis Farmers Market is your best bet.
In addition to seasonal produce, honey, eggs, fresh meat, baked goods, fresh cut flowers and seasonal plants are available at the West Allis Farmers Market.
Established in approximately 1919, the West Allis Farmers Market had been a source of fine fresh produce for generations of families. Grandparents and parents have brought their children and relatives to shop at one of the largest, if not the oldest, established Farmers Markets in southeastern Wisconsin.
One reason that the West Allis Market shines above the rest is that all the farmers at the market have to raise what they sell. If you want only the freshest produce grown in Wisconsin, shop the West Allis Farmers Market.
The market is the largest open-air market in the Metropolitan Milwaukee area. Its initial establishment reflects the European practice of shopping daily in such markets that were familiar to many area residents.
