On Sunday, March 1, 2020, 9 am-1 pm, join us for the St. Sebastian 11th Winter Farmers Market and Brunch, a great way to enjoy fellowship and celebrate those who grow our food. We offer a made-from-scratch brunch prepared with ingredients direct from our Wisconsin farm partners. Or just come and shop!
Purchase brunch tickets at the door– Just $10 for adults, $6 for seniors, free for kids – max $30 for families.
Check out our vendors – No ticket is necessary to shop. Download a list of this year’s vendors. Each market vendor donates 10% of their sales to the Harvest of Hope fund which assists farmers in need. One new farm vendor this year is Red Stone Rice, LLC. It’s Wisconsin’s first and only rice farm located only 20 minutes away from downtown Milwaukee! Founded by Michael Schläppi, a professor of biology at Marquette University, Red Stone Rice LLC began with funding through grants from Marquette and the US Department of Agriculture. Prof Schläppi’s research identified a high-yielding Southern Russian rice variety able to withstand our cold Wisconsin weather.
