Open Air: Milwaukee County Winter Farmers' Market

The new Saturday morning Milwaukee County Winter Farmers' Market debuts this weekend in the lobby of the Tommy Thompson Youth Center at State Fair Park (Gate 5 at 640 S. 84th St.) in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Some 20 local vendors will offer everything from farm-fresh eggs and apples to farmstead cheese and yogurt from 8 a.m. to noon every Saturday through April 24.

The new winter market follows a national trend of farmers markets extending their seasonal connections between food producers and consumers to meet a growing demand for year-round local food.
