Strengthening Wisconsin Farmers Markets

The Southeast Wisconsin Farmers Market Collaborative, funded by a generous grant from the University of Wisconsin Madison Extension, aims to strengthen local communities by supporting agricultural initiatives and promoting healthy living. The University of Wisconsin Extension, a champion of community development, was awarded this grant from the USDA Farmers Market Promotion Program. This grant will empower the Collaborative to gather valuable data, improve market experiences, and boost local agricultural product sales. The Market Managers of the Southeast WI Farmers Market Collaborative are working together to accomplish these goals regionally through our promotional efforts and the Taste It Tent program.
