The weather is warming, and baseball season is starting. And this week, Larry's Market, 8737 N. Deerwood Dr. in Brown Deer, is gearing up for its 14th year of Friday cookouts.

Beginning Friday, April 4, Larry’s Market will offer specialty grilled items from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. every Friday through October, rain or shine.

Weekly sandwich options always include a choice of seafood, beef tenderloin, chicken breast, bratwurst, chicken sausage, and Angus hamburgers and cheeseburgers, with favorite offerings including teriyaki or jerk tenderloin, cajun catfish, lime ginger salmon and red wine oregano marinated chicken breast.

Guests choose from toppings like house-made fruit salsa or Cajun mayo, a variety of Wisconsin cheeses and buns, including Milwaukee’s own Pretzilla bun.

As a special feature on April 4,  Susie Chen will be present to sample her new Milwaukee "BratStickers" (where "East meets Wurst") made with Usinger's Fresh Bratwurst.

Friday menus are available on the web at or by following the Market on Facebook or Twitter
