The Milwaukee Night Market returns for its fourth and final event of the season this Wednesday, Sept. 13.

The free, outdoor event takes place from 5 to 10 p.m. on West Wisconsin Avenue between 2nd Street and Vel R. Phillips Avenue. More than 100 local vendors will participate in the fun. The diverse lineup features artists, restaurateurs, farmers, crafters and makers of all kinds.

This season, there are 20 more vendors to offer even more Milwaukee culture.

“The Night Market is a special experience that should be on every Milwaukeean’s bucket list,” says Stacie Callies, Executive Director of Westown Association.

1. Red Hidrant Natural Juices – Coming in healthy: All natural juices and smoothies are ready to fortify.
