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 a 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. This coalition is co-facilitated by UW-Extension FoodWIse and Fondy Food Center.

Our next Zoom meeting will take place in the new year. Stay tuned for details for our first meeting in 2022!

If you have questions about your market’s SNAP/EBT program please email Meg at meg.kilkenny@wisc.edu.

The Milwaukee Farmers Market Coalition works to build capacity to serve all shoppers in Milwaukee, shoppers that represent the diversity of our Milwaukee community. As facilitators of this coalition, we want to recognize that as white leaders we do not represent that diversity. Please read our June newsletter which includes our statement and commitment to racial equity work in continuing to make farmers markets accessible to all Milwaukeeans.
