Saturdays, July 4, 2020 - Oct. 31, 2020 from 8am-12:30pm outside on College Avenue from Appleton Street to Drew Street plus Houdini Plaza, experience the Farm Market with 80 essential vendors spaced 10 feet apart selling fresh fruits & vegetables, exotic meats & cheeses, breads & baked goods.

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. 

Please note: Per City of Appleton Ordinance, NO pets are allowed.
Sec. 10-47. Animals at special events prohibited. (a) Animals are prohibited on public property located within the Downtown District (Richmond Street to Drew Street/south side of Lawrence Street to north side of Washington Street) on the following special event days: Flag Day Parade, License to Cruise, Octoberfest, Christmas Parade, and any day that a planned/permitted special event would close one or more blocks within the Downtown District to normal use or traffic, except by written permission from the event permit holder for special activities in accordance with the event.

Face Masks At Market Update

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.

Important Announcement & Reminders for the Downtown Appleton Farm Market

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.

NEW: Pre-Purchased, Low-Contact, Pick Up will be available starting July 4.

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!

How it works:

  • Throughout the week, shop directly with our vendors for the items you need from our online database (Database of vendors participating in the low-contact pick up linked below)
  • Work with that vendor directly to purchase and pay in advance. (No payment transactions will be made on Saturday at the pickup location)
  • Then Saturday morning between 9:30-11:30am, drive or walk through the pickup location (behind City Center on Oneida Street – click here for a map) to pick up your items from Farm Market staff (who will be wearing masks)
