Fondy Food Center to Start First Pop-Up Farmers Market at Schlitz Park

Fondy Food Center, a well-known nonprofit whose mission is to connect neighborhoods to fresh, local food, will start its first pop-up farmers market at Schlitz Park on Thursday, June 25th. The weekly market will run Thursdays from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on N. 2nd St. in front of Brewhouse Square through the end of October. Each week, a rotating list of three to four local farmers from Fondy’s longstanding Fond du Lac Ave. market will sell mostly produce.

“We embrace the Fondy mission and share the motivation of the market’s original benefactor,” said Schlitz Park Tenant Relations Director Suzy Pitzo. “We want to provide our tenants with the opportunity to shop at work for fresh, locally grown and affordable produce. Partnering with Fondy brings added convenience to Schlitz Park tenants and neighbors with a unique amenity that reinforces our commitment to health and wellbeing.”
