THE BEST WAY TO START YOUR SATURDAY

The Tosa Farmers Market is a local not-for-profit organization that carefully curates the best, freshest foods in the region, but it’s more than that. It’s a community hub for foodies, neighbors, bikers, coffee-lovers, music fans, yogis — and everyone in between.

Questions About the Market?

WE’VE GOT THE ANSWERS

The market is at 7720 Harwood Avenue in the Village of Wauwatosa, across from the Little Red Store. The market is situated on the Oak Leaf bike trail and easily accessible from downtown via State Street, and from everywhere else via I-94/I-45. In addition, the market is just blocks from MKE County Bus Routes 31 & 67.
The market runs June 2 through October 13.
It’s open 8 a.m. to noon every Saturday.

The Tosa Farmers Market is a local not-for-profit organization, guided by a volunteer board of directors and a staff market manager. The team loves Wauwatosa and cares passionately about supporting local agriculture and business.

Every week, the market is home to about 45 farmers and food producers, selling a first-class mix of produce, plants, cut flowers, bread and baked goods, award-winning cheese, coffee, waffles, popsicles, fish, meat and poultry, and prepared breakfast and dinner items.

The first Saturday of each month, we also add a Makers Market, featuring a juried selection of local artisans selling handmade arts and crafts.

Our tight space isn’t a good match for dogs, so they are not permitted at the market. Service animals are always permitted and welcome, and we do sell locally made dog treats.

No soliciting by political, commercial or other special cause groups or individuals is permitted within the boundaries of the market during market hours.
Please alert someone at the Information Booth, located near the Tosa Farmers Market shed, if you are aware of such activities taking place within the market. The Market Manager will simply ask those groups or individuals to move their activities to a spot outside of the market space.

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!”

Facebook review

“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!”
