The main goal of the Milwaukee Farmers Market Coalition (MFMC) is to increase access to, and utilization of, farmers markets by building capacity to serve low income consumers and by attracting diverse clientele with the long-term impact of increasing produce intake within Milwaukee area communities by convening interested FMs along with healthcare, governmental, non-profit, citizens, and other partners.

Our next coalition meeting is June 4, 2020 from 4 – 5:30 PM and will take place remotely via Zoom in accordance with Wisconsin’s Safer at Home Order.
