I love the Milwaukee Public Market, so it’s great to see it get more national exposure. This time, it’s listed as one of "America’s Best Public Markets" by Frommer’s, a collection of travel products that includes more than 300 guidebooks and Frommers.com.
Here’s what Laura Kiniry said about the market:
"While smaller than other public markets, the Milwaukee Public Market is still a foodie hotspot with about 20 specialty food purveyors. Head to the West Allis Cheese & Sausage Shop for a wheel of Wisconsin's famous cheddar, or sip local craft brews at the market's Buffalo Water Beer Bar. You'll also find shops filled with artisan breads and hand-dipped chocolate. A seasonal farmers market is held just outside (weekends, June-October)."
Seattle, Chattanooga, Pittsburgh, Los Angeles and other cities were listed among the 12 that the travel guide cited.
