It's hard to believe that summer is winding down, and even harder to believe that it is already time for the August NEWaukee Night Market.  As a proud sponsor, OnMilwaukee is ready to set up for tomorrow, and we hope to see you there.

The market will take place on Wednesday, Aug. 14 from 5 to 10 p.m. on the stretch of Wisconsin Avenue between Plankinton and Vel R. Philips Avenues. It's time to get outside, enjoy a summer night and love the city we call home.

From food trucks to local artists, there is no shortage of entertainment or places to splurge on a new treat for yourself. Engage with your community, watch some performances, try something new and have fun! Below are some highlights of some of the 60-plus vendors you might see at the NEWaukee Night Market on Wednesday.


Say hello to beautiful, lightweight, ethical jewelry. Danica Hess, owner of Danidorem is inspired by nature, simple things, and all things vintage that may have a story behind them. She is currently focused on making eco-friendly jewelry.

Muse Brews Kombucha

For all you Kombucha lovers, Muse Brews has a variety of flavors all backed with integrity and a story. With flavors called "Poetry," and "Let's Snuggle," you better stop by their table and ask what they're all about. Find your muse!

Sam Hanson Doodle

A self-proclaimed "doodling fool in Milwaukee," Sam Hanson is a local artist who creates truly charming doodles. Some are Milwaukee-inspired, some just life-inspired. All are wonderful nonetheless!

Happy Dough Lucky

Based in Mequon, Happy Dough Lucky makes mini donuts with an extensive mini donut menu. From Sweet & Salty Caramel to Girl Scouts' Samoa, I'm getting hungry just thinking about it!

Tizzy Dee

Speaking of donuts, Tizzy Dee makes crocheted donut keychains and they are quite adorable. Stop by her table to see what other kind of crocheted goodies she has to show!

Double B’s BBQ

Once you've worked up an appetite, stop by Double B's for some MKE style BBQ. Cooked old school, low and slow, for tender, balanced smoky flavor that deserves to be served "naked." Enjoy!
