Vendor at Fondy Food Market

Milwaukee Area Farmers Markets

Our Earth Justice Ministry at First Unitarian Society of Milwaukee is promoting September as a month to eat local – our “C’Mon Home To Eat” campaign.

Let’s all eat locally and consciously (as much as possible) during the month of September! The target area: a focus on consuming foods grown within 100 miles of Milwaukee.

Let’s celebrate local foods. Let’s stand up (or sit down and eat right!) for a healthy local food system. Avoid the mass-produced and gas-guzzling products packaged and shipped by the industrial food system.

Looking for a great place to start? Below is a wonderful directory of area Farmers Markets, to help you meet your “C’Mon Home To Eat” goals in September . . . and throughout the growing seasons ahead.

(And if you haven’t yet, sign up now for the September “C’mon Home To Eat” pledge.)
