On Saturday, October 15, 2011, we will have the last day of the South Shore Farmers Market, at South Shore Park, 2900 S. Shore Drive in Bay View, for this season. The market begins at 8 AM and ends at 12 Noon every Saturday from June 18th to October 15th. We have had a wonderful season so far. Only a few rainy days have occurred. The market goes on rain or shine, except during a major thunder storm, when lightning presents an imminent danger to us all. There are over 40 vendors to serve you here. Three bakeries, two coffee shops, crepes, smoothies, fresh mushrooms, meat on the grill, chickens and eggs, flowers and plants, homemade candy, kettlecorn, fresh preserves, apples, all types of farm goods including squash, corn, tomatoes, potatoes, brocolli. cauliflower, brussell sprouts on a stalk. beans, peas, cabbage, onions, spices, etc. We have a very relaxed atmosphere at the market with a great view of Lake Michigan. Dogs are welcome, but they must be on a leash and owners must clean up after them. Welcome to the best famers market in Milwaukee. Y'all come and join us.
