Tips for the BEST Downtown Appleton Farm Market Experience!
The Downtown Appleton Farm Market fills your Saturday mornings with smells, sights, and of course…shopping! Whether you are a seasoned Farm Market attendee or a first-timer, read the tips below to make the most of your visit!
The Downtown Appleton Farm Market stretches 4 blocks of College Avenue, so wear your walking shoes since you could break the record for number of steps taken before 12:30pm on a Saturday!
With the heat of the summer, be sure to dress in layers for the cooler mornings, but sunshine that hits mid-market! Most of all, remember your reusable totes and larger bags to pack all of your farm market finds in!
Pack the Essentials
Pack the cash, especially the small bills to make quick and easy change as you shop from vendor to vendor. Do not to pack your furry friends per the City of Appleton’s ordinance not allowing pets at special events – but do pick up some fun new pet accessories or treats from a few of our Farm Market vendors! Be sure to walk the market in style with your sunglasses and hats to protect you from the sun – and don’t forget sunscreen!
Develop a Shopping List
With 150 vendors at the Downtown Appleton Farm Market, make yourself a shopping list of what you need for meals this week. Consider what produce is in season, look at our list of vendors (click here), and write your list consisting of veggies, fruits, meat, baked goods, and even the new décor from our craft vendors that your living room wall is dying to have!
