Visitors are often looking to experience Greater Green Bay the way the locals do. During the Summer and Fall months, it's a no-brainer to send them to check out a farmers market. The Downtown Green Bay Farmer's Market has been running strong since 1917--for those keeping score, that's longer than the Green Bay Packers have been around. So Greater Green Bay has a deep history with these outdoor markets. Here's some info on several of Greater Green Bay's favorite farmers markets available throughout the week.
Saturday Farmers Market - Downtown Green Bay
In its 100th year, this is Green Bay's oldest farmers market. It takes place every Saturday morning between May 20 to October 28 beginning at 7:00am until 12:00pm on South Washington Street. When we say it is full of "local vendors", we really do mean local. They must come from within a 75-mile radius of Green Bay and grow, make, cook or prepare their own products and wares.
Whether you're looking for local honey from a family-owned bee farm, dog treats so natural you and your furry friend can share the same snack, free yoga lessons on the CityDeck overlooking the Fox River, live music or squeaky-fresh cheese curds to eat as you walk, you'll want to join 10,000 locals shopping on Saturday morning.

This market features fruits, vegetables, arts, crafts and boutique shopping. It is also a great food and drink outing. Instead of one big meal, graze your way from food vendor to food vendor getting a taste of a variety of local restaurants. Relax in the beer garden with pourings from Green Bay's own breweries.
