About the Markets

Downtown Fond du Lac has two markets from May through October. Both of our markets now accept EBT, credit and debit cards. You can swipe your card at the Information Tent and receive wooden tokens in exchange that are used like cash at participating vendor booths. 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.

We are now accepting FLOATING PERMIT applications for the 2014 Downtown Fond du Lac Farmers Market!    

Floater permits/waiting list:  All Saturday and Wednesday market spaces have been designated, a limited number of Floater permits will now be issued. Saturday floater permit holders can fill any space left open at 6:31 a.m. with Market Manager approval.  Wednesday floater permit holders can fill any space left open at 11:31 a.m. with Market Manager approval. 

Floater permits are $30 for the entire season, as a floater vendor, you would be considered a member of the market that does not have a reserved space.  Floaters arrive at the market, sign in with the Market Manager and wait to be assigned a space for the day. A floater list is created each day and available stalls are assigned on a “first to arrive, first to be placed” basis. While a stall cannot be guaranteed, every effort is made to place all vendors.
