The Brewery District will hold its first annual Farmers Market at Preservation Park at 925 W. Juneau Avenue (under the historic neon Pabst Sign).

The farmers market will take place June 10 through Oct. 28 on Fridays from 3 to 6 p.m. It will feature local farmers, plus artists, makers, beer, food trucks, and live entertainment. Best Place, 917 W Juneau Ave., will also host a beer garden from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Interstate Parking, a sponsor of the market along with Brilliant DPI, will provide parking validation for customers with proof of market purchase.

The Brewery District is home to over 800 apartments, plus 70 businesses within eight city blocks. That includes the UW-Milwaukee Joseph J. Zilber School of Public Health, two hotels, plus a variety of breweries and eateries including Central Waters Brewing, Milwaukee Brewing Company, Bottle House 42, On Tap and the restaurants at Eleven25 at the Pabst.

“Now that the neighborhood is fully completed, we are excited to program outdoor spaces to bring the community together,” said Erin Stenum, manager of The Brewery Neighborhood Improvement District No. 1. 

“The Friday Farmers Market will the perfect place to enjoy the beginning of the weekend, pick up some amazing local produce straight from the farm for the week, grab a beer from one of our neighborhood breweries Central Waters Brewing Company or Milwaukee Brewing Company, and enjoy the history of the neighborhood and all the great things to do here.”
