This morning on AMKE, we had another visit from our friend, Wisconsin Foodie, Kyle Cherek. Kyle came in to tell us about the Milwaukee County Winter Farmers' Market.
The Milwaukee County Winter Farmers’ Market (MCWFM) is a nonprofit organization, guided by a seven person board of directors. The mission of the Market is to promote local, sustainable agriculture; increase economic opportunities for small family farms and innovative food businesses; provide equitable access to wholesome food; and build a vibrant gathering place for metro Milwaukee residents and visitors.
They provide 30 weekly vendors live within 90 miles of a well-situated, indoor venue at Wisconsin State Fair Park. There, agricultural vendors offer high quality fruit, vegetables, meat, eggs, poultry and dairy products. Local food vendors also bring a wide variety of freshly baked goods, jams, cider, honey, maple syrup, sorghum, sauces and soups, as well as delicious ethnic cuisine.
