The Milwaukee Winter Farmers Market returns this weekend
Each week on Radio Milwaukee, Milwaukee Magazine dining critic Ann Christenson and 88Nine’s resident foodie Tarik Moody discuss Milwaukee’s culinary and restaurant culture on This Bites.
Today on This Bites, we discussed the return of the Milwaukee and Oconomowoc winter farmers markets this weekend. We also shared news about a new restaurant that focuses on CBD-infused cuisine. Then, the Laotian popup SapSap returns to Milwaukee with pho kits featuring brisket from Heaven's Table BBQ. Finally, Riverwest Pizza is doing something really special for the community on Thanksgiving.
Celebrating its 12th season, the Milwaukee Winter Farmers Market returns to the Mitchell Park Conservatory, a.k.a The Domes. Each Saturday, you can find about 30 weekly vendors offering a variety of fruit, vegetables, meat, dairy products and more in the Greenhouse Annex. The market will be practicing social distancing and requiring masks.
New restaurant with a focus on CBD-infused cuisine
According to Urban Milwaukee, there will be a new restaurant called Lifted and Gifted that will focus on CBD-infused cuisine. The restaurant will be located in the former MKEHemp Rx Dispensary, located at 706 N. Milwaukee St.
Lifted and Gifted will also offer "date nights," with a professional chef showing a group of couples how to cook a meal in a restaurant setting. The restaurant will offer vegan options, as well.
SapSap Pho-kits at Lucky Ginger
On November 15, SapSap will collaborate with Heaven's Table BBQ on a DIY pho kit at Lucky Ginger. You will be able to get take-home pho to prepare with smoked brisket.
