Our Mission

The Downtown Fond du Lac Farmers Market's mission is to provide local, fresh and healthy food options to the community and surrounding areas while bringing consumers to downtown Fond du Lac and educating the community on healthy living, staying active, and the value of knowing your farmer and your food. 

History of the Market

The Downtown Fond du Lac market is estimated to be in its 45th season. The market is coordinated by the Downtown Fond du Lac Partnership (DFP), and is located on the street in a 4-block area of South Main Street.

The Saturday market runs from the second weekend in May through the end of October. Wednesday markets begin the first week of June until the last week of October. 

In 2016, in partnership with the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation, Downtown Fond du Lac Farmers Market, completed an economic impact analysis of the Saturday market based on data collected from vendors, businesses, and customer surveys.

 

The economic impact of the 2016 market season is estimated to represent:

  • $1.1 million in additional economic activity and 5 jobs in downtown.
  • $2.2 million in additional economic activity and 22 jobs in the Fond du Lac Metropolitan area.
  • Over the course of the season, the market generated $254,070 in total estimated sales to market vendors, a 35% increase over 2015!

Full details of the analysis are available in the link below.
