“Fresh, picked the same day”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

I have been going to the Farmers Market, or as many call it, "The Green Market" forever. My mom or my grandmother would take me from the time I was three years old. That's over sixty years and I still can't wait to get there.

If you haven't been to the West Allis Farmer's Market you have been missing a great treasure. The produce!!! The produce!!! It is so incredibly fresh and yummy.

In the spring you will find flower and vegetables started for you to take home and plant. The variety is endless. You will also find many crisp apples and fresh cider. The flowers are gorgeous! They have hanging baskets that are just huge. Real eggs from the farm. When you crack them open the bright yellow yolks stand up so high. MMMMM. While the farmers pay rent for their stall, their overhead is nothing like a store would be and this is fresh, fresh, fresh!

In the summer plan on walking up and down each aisle and don't miss anything. There is fresh picked corn that is the best you've ever had. It's picked that morning and we take our corn, eggplant, beans, snap peas, honeycombs, lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, kale, and other vegetables right home and make a big salad, quick cook some vegetables and corn. Oh, the corn. You've never had corn like this from the store. You only need cook it for about 3 minutes and we don't even put butter on it. It is so awesome.

In the fall they have cabbages, eggs, fresh chickens, honey, apples, fresh cut flowers, carrots, and a ton of different types of squash, herbs, etc. It's always THE BEST!

Cash only, no credit cards.

Usually starts to open about the end of April and runs through approximately the end of October.

Open Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday at 1:00 PM until about 5:30ish.

“Great way to spent a Saturday afternoon”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

I have been going to the West Allis Farmer's Market since I was a little girl. Now 40+ years later I still enjoy going a few times a month to check out all of the booths and bring home tons of fresh farm grown fruits, vegetables, and beautiful flowers! Hope to be able to continue this tradition for many years to come.

“A foodies landmark in Milwaukee!”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

Every spring I wait for this farmer's market to open. Go early for the best pickles for pickling, all the vegetables are picked daily and locally. We have some great soil, so you won't see these pickings at your standard grocery store. There is also a guy who sells corn and will sign to you. Just overall great visit. Don't bring your visa, cash n coin is best.

“Wonderful farm-fresh food right in the city”
Reviewed 4 December 2013

If you're in the city of West Allis or close, visit one of the historic places to get your produce right from the farm. It also has some farmers that bring in fresh meat, eggs, honey, flowers, herbs and much more in an open-air, sheltered atmosphere. We must support our local farms and businesses.......and it's fun and delicious! The best time to go is Aug. thru Sept. However, it is open June thru Oct.

“Best in SE Wisconsin”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

Definitely worth a drive. The produce changes with the season so we got apples and root vegetables this time. We also got grilled bratwurst and italians from Rupena's for a quick lunch.
