Here We Go Again


Raking back the leaves and debris we find the sprouts of the 2021 market season pushing through to grow before our eyes.


That's right all you lovely marketeers, the first market of the 2021 season is upon us. Starting at 7:00am this Saturday morning, the Westside Community Market opens for its 17th(!) season.


It marks the return of farm fresh produce, new plants and flowers to brighten up our homes and gardens, squeaky fresh cheese curds to bring smiles to our faces and of course so many more wonders to be had.


With a fantastic lineup of vendors coming your way this season (check out the roster below), the 2021 season will be one for the record books. Look for your favorites from our longtime vendors, try something new from those just joining us for the first time and celebrate the return of several vendors who've been away for a season or more.


While we revel in the return of market, we must also keep up our efforts to combat the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. We ask all of our shoppers to keep following our Safe Shopping Guidelines with hope that before too long we'll be able to scale back these measures and eventually return to normal operations. We thank everyone for their support in keeping the market safe, knowing what we protect is a gem within our west side community.


So here's to a wonderful market season. 30 Saturdays, April 17th - November 6th, filled with the best of Wisconsin goodness. We can't wait to share it with you!


See you at market!
