The Milwaukee Night Market is back for its fourth and final event of the season this Wednesday, Sept. 21.

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 sorts.

“We were thrilled to have over 300 local small businesses apply to vend at the 2022 Markets from which our team has curated an exciting list of vendors that represent that diversity of our city,” said Stacie Callies, Executive Director of Westown Association.

Plus, American Family Insurance returns for the second year, sponsoring the vendors fees for 10 entrepreneurs with ethnic diversity and gender parity at each of the four Markets.
