The East Town Association, the group that brings you Jazz in the Park, Bastille Days and the East Town Market (as well as a host of other activities and missions) will add another event to Downtown this summer when it expands its market to Tuesday afternoon and evenings.
The East Town Market, a favorite of mine, runs June-September at Cathedral Square Park. This summer, though, it will expand its produce, food, arts, crafts and prepared foods vendors to Tuesdays.
The Tuesday market will run 3-7 p.m. and open June 7. The Saturday market will open June 4 and, as always, runs 9 a.m.-1 p.m.
This is great news for Downtown and should even better highlight and complement the amazing Wednesday Westown Market at Zeidler Square and, of course, the Milwaukee Public Market, as well as all of the other markets in and around the city.
Here's to summer, and stay tuned for a full list of area farmers' markets. We will post it when they are all confirmed.
