The Menomonie Farmer's Market is found in 2000 by a group of local farmers. It is being managed by West CAP and is located in Wilson Park at the corner of 8th Street and 9th Avenue.
In 2022, Menomonie Farmer's Market will open for its 22nd Summer Season on Saturday - May 21st and will operate on Wednesdays (10:AM-6PM) and
Saturdays (8AM-1PM) through October 22nd.
Since 2000, the Menomonie Farmer’s Market has seen a remarkable growth in participation and sales. Vendor participation has increased to approximately 40 vendors at the peak of the summer harvest. A typical market day has vendors selling everything from vegetables to fruit, eggs, meats, cheese, bakery, soaps and lotions, and handmade crafts.
The market also provides a direct service to low-income seniors and families. The Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program and the Women, Infants and Children Program vouchers can be redeemed at the market. These USDA programs assist low-income senior citizens and families in purchasing fresh and healthful produce directly from farmers.
The market also accepts EBT (Foodshare).
