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.
