The Wisconsin Department of Health Services says farm markets in Wisconsin are considered essential businesses that may remain open because they provide a critical food resource. We are working closely with the City of Appleton Health Department to ensure the farm market is safe for customers, staff/volunteers and farm market vendors.
In support of Governor Ever's Executive Order, wear a mask when visiting the Downtown Appleton Farm Market.
While the order does not require a mask in an outdoor area & ADI does not have the ability to stop interaction between those persons legally at the Farm Market, we respectfully request the use of face coverings at Farm Market for the health and safety of our vendors, staff and customers. Masks are FREE to customers at any sponsor or information booth.

Appleton Downtown, Inc. (ADI), has a permit for operation of the Farm Market on College Avenue. The only groups or vendors that ADI allows in the permit area are approved vendors and service providers. However, ADI has been informed by legal counsel and the Appleton Police Department that the First Amendment protects demonstrators such as those that have been on College Avenue during the Farm Market in recent weeks. ADI has requested these demonstrators to move to open space in Houdini Plaza or to an area outside of the Farm Market. All of ADI’s reasonable requests have been refused by the groups that are demonstrating.
Please note: our guidelines are modeled after the WISCONSIN DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE, TRADE AND CONSUMER PROTECTION's farm market guidelines. If you are interested in reading their recommendations - click here.
For an alternative way to shop the market and still support your local farm vendors from the comfort of your home, you can shop throughout the week direct with them and then pick it up Saturday mornings in the designated pick up location!
