John Manke is an active former Bay View resident who is involved in numerous neighborhood organizations, including the Bay View Historical Society, the Humboldt Park Fourth of July Association and the Shore Shore Farmers Market. He believes Bay View has a fine tradition in its past that we do not want to lose in the future.
On Satuday, October 13, 2012, we will have the final South Shore Farmers Market for this season. Cream City Swing and the Bay View Middle & High School Band will play at the market. This has been a great season for all of us. There are over forty vendors selling products here. Crepes, fresh mushrooms, prime beef on the grill, kettle corn, egg rolls & specialty teas, three bakeries, two coffee shops, new plants and flowers, pumpkins, squash, tomatoes, potatoes and many other farm items are on sale here. There are a few picnic tables available if you wish to sit down at the market. It may be cool so dress warm. Most of all, enjoy the largest and best farmers market in Milwaukee, located in South Shore park, 2900 S. Shore Drive in Bay View. Y'all come and join us here.
