Hard to believe, but 2018 marks the 10th season of the South Milwaukee Downtown Market. I’m proud to have played a small role in its early success — and excited to see how it’s grown over the years.
The market has become a community staple, an iconic event that is uniquely South Milwaukee, and something for which we are becoming famous as a city.
Thanks to all of the volunteers who make it happen, starting with the board and Chairwoman Carol Rehak, and manager Tony Bloom. And thanks to the vendors who bring the vision we created 10 years ago to life every day.
Area residents looking for a unique shopping experience travel to downtown South Milwaukee, where they find an eclectic mix of merchants selling fresh fruits and vegetables, baked goods, flowers, art, jewelry and everything in between. They also find a sampling of area restaurants, live entertainment and special events, making the South Milwaukee Downtown Market a true destination for families, foodies and everyone in between.
It’s a simple yet ambitious vision – one we bring to life every week at the South Milwaukee Downtown Market. See for yourself, and join the dozens of local vendors and hundreds of regular customers who eagerly await each market.
See you at the two indoor markets!
