THEY MAKE THE MARKET GROW
The not-for-profit Tosa Farmers Market runs on the generosity of local business sponsorships. We are grateful to these community partners for making the market happen week after week, year after year.
We Support the Ronald McDonald House
Fresh donations every week
Since 2011, Tosa Farmers Market vendors have donated thousands of pounds of food to the kitchens at the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Eastern Wisconsin. Every Saturday, vendors generously fill several large green bins with their unsold products. Most of this fresh food is transformed into convenient to-go meals for families who stay at the House and spend their days at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin. Ronald McDonald staff explain that when life has been disrupted in every other way, having free lunches made from fresh ingredients is an enormous help. When you support the Tosa Farmers Market vendors, you support these families.
Why do People Love the Market?
“Love love LOVE! Great vendors and prices….There’s always something new to see or music to hear. You’re right in the heart of the village so you’re within walking distance to go explore. Fun Saturday activity for families!”
“I like all the people I’ve met volunteering at the market. They’re fun and share a dedication to bringing healthy local food to our community. My favorite part is right before the set-up shift. When I walk through the village before anything’s open and see the test going up and the bins of produce unloading down in the lot in the early morning light, I get a little thrill like I used to get from sneaking downstairs for a peek at the tree before my parents woke up on Christmas morning”
“Firefly Real Estate has been a major supporter of Tosa Farmers Market since we opened our doors in 2011. Watching the growth of the market since its inception has been very exciting. For many Wauwatosans, stopping at the market on Saturday mornings has become a ritual. As sponsors, it provides us with an opportunity to support the community that supports us!”
