Our Mission, Our Community
Burlington is home to a vibrant Farmers’ Market that contributes to the success of local food growers and producers. Having the market on a weekly basis strengthens our food economy and serves the community as a gathering place.
Building and Preserving Burlington Through Food
Communities thrive when local dollars stay in the community. Choosing to buy local has a direct positive impact on our local economy. The market attracts visitors to the Historic Downtown area benefiting other local businesses. You can’t help but enjoy yourself at Wehmhoff Square, a beautiful park setting with great food and music all lend to the sense of community at the Farmers Market.
Start your weekly food shopping at the market on Thursday. Season by season you can find the best SE Wisconsin has to offer for your meal selection. You will be able to pick up locally grown, seasonal produce directly from the farmer who nurtured it. The food is fresh, tasty and nutritious. Buying locally, eating seasonally you will also be able to appreciate the unique flavor and diversity of local crops. Our farmers use this income to sustain their families, farms and orchards, helping them to remain good stewards of the land.
Know your Farmer, Know your Food.
Values for our Community Farmers’ Market
Nourishment, Sustainability, Relationships, Excellence and Organizational Strength are core values to Burlington Farmers’ Market.
Food is at the heart and soul of our lives. Access to fresh, nutritious food is the foundation for health and human dignity. The relationships that are built by positive personal connections and cooperation are meaningful contributions to our community. By combining innovation and industriousness we can achieve our best while making the Farmers’ Market fun, functional and beautiful. A salaried Market Manager and a Board of Directors was established in 2009, made up of volunteers with different backgrounds, to help with management and direction for the market.
