Downtown Fond du Lac Farmers Market
The Downtown Fond du Lac Farmers Market is Moving to Main Street May 9th!
Downtown Fond du Lac has two markets May through October. In addition to cash, both of our markets accept EBT, credit and debit cards. You can swipe your card at the Information Tent and receive wooden tokens which are used like cash at participating vendor booths. For EBT use your Wisconsin QUEST card at the information Tent. It is a plastic debit card with your name, card number and the Wisconsin QUEST logo on it. You must have your QUEST card with you at the tent to purchase tokens using your FoodShare account.

On Saturdays, over 80 vendors sell the freshest Wisconsin-grown produce, plants, flowers, baked goods, meats and cheese. Crafts, arts, pottery, and other hand-made items are also available. At the height of the season the market brings over 2,000 shoppers downtown weekly.

Downtown Crew Members Needed
Volunteering for the Downtown Fond du Lac Partnership is rewarding and fun! Help keep Downtown vibrant, get the inside scoop on exciting Downtown happenings, and meet great people!
The Downtown Farmers Market opens Saturday, May 9 and runs each Saturday until October 31. We are currently looking for volunteers to help at the Market. Tasks may include moving barricades to allow vendors in/out for setup/tear down, mingling with customers, assisting with customer surveys (specific dates only), and saying “I don’t know, but let me find out.”
Volunteer help would be greatly appreciated from 6 a.m. to 1 p.m. each Saturday beginning May 9. Shifts can be large or small and one-time or continuous.
Want to be a part of the action whenever you’re needed? Just e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with "Volunteer Inquiry” in the subject line. We’ll add you to the list when volunteers are needed for future events and campaigns.
