Holiday Market

Come check us out at the Holiday Market at the Will-Mar Neighborhood Center, 953 Jennifer St. in Madison.  We will be there from 4pm-7pm and will have a variety of  Gift Boxes available featuring our Native made products!

New Location for Mobile Farmers Market and Updates

Mobile Farmers Market is moving!  We are transitioning to a more cooperative model that will be more beneficial to everyone involved. This involves moving from our present retail location to our new warehouse location: 2890 Terra Court Unit 32, Sun Prairie, WI 53590.

We will be focusing more on distribution, bulk orders to restaurants/chefs, and vending opportunities. Another focus of ours is on more online sales and to continue our monthly TSA (Tribally Supported Agriculture). We will have the space to make larger purchases and hope that producers will work with us to offer competitive wholesale pricing in order to continue providing products to our Native communities and to continue outreach within non-Native communities. After the holidays, we will be able to order in larger quantities and to handle more frequent shipping.   We will maintain our marketing and outreach efforts in order to continue garnering support for our Native producers. Locally, you will find our products at Supercharge! Foods with other retail locations coming soon.

Please contact Dan Cornelius, 608-280-1267 or Liz Kiesling, 608-444-8156 with questions.

Summer Schedule – Chime in!

As spring turns to summer, the Mobile Farmers Market team is looking ahead to a busy season. In order to maximize our impact, we’re sharing our draft summer schedule for market events. We only have one vehicle right now, so timing is key, and we hope that you’ll help us improve on our draft in two areas.

First, let us know if there are important events in your community that we are conflicting with or missing, especially if they’re related to food and agriculture.

Second, let us know if producers in your community would benefit from workshops focused on specific crops or methods, USDA agencies and programs, or regional food resources. Our workshop schedule will be based on this feedback. You can read more about our workshops at http://www.iacgreatlakes.com.

Here’s our draft schedule – please chime in!
