Housed in a historical warehouse complex, Milwaukee Public Market today serves as one of the city's most popular centers for local businesses, tourism, and casual dining. Visit the market and wander its halls full of vendors, stands, and companies selling an array of street foods, raw ingredients, souvenirs, and more. Stop by a family-run meat market for some fresh cold cuts, grab a prepared meal of classic fish and chips, or just kick back with a cup of coffee. You can even join in on a themed cooking class in order to learn some new techniques or brush up on your culinary skills. Be sure to check the market's online schedule for information about the frequent special events and courses it offers.

Milwaukee Public Market reviews
Was there in July. Great place to walk around and see all the great items. Plenty of food options, and non food options.

Great way to experience a lot of local culture and food. Limited seating, so I recommend trying to time your visit to avoid the bigger crowds

A hub for locally crafted foods and sweet treats in a stunning building that evokes Pikes Place while honoring its Milwaukee roots. Inside you will find a variety of vendors selling freshly prepared food. The offerings are expansive, so make sure to take a little stroll before making your final decision. You will definitely be drawn to the swordfish in the sky that directs you to St. Paul’s Fish Market. You certainly can’t go wrong there because their lobster roll is incredible. After your tour of the lower level, take your treasures upstairs where there is plenty of seating available. If it’s nice outside, then head outside where you can sit by the river or just take in the livelihood of the Third Ward.
In Chicago there is a place called French market near the Ogilvie station. This public market reminds me of that with a Milwaukee's spin. We love all the variety it offers with a cute little display and classy presentation. They have carefully chosen the selection of old and new favorite. Whenever we have a chance, we try to eat real, clean, slow cooked food and they had all the options we were looking for including a real candy store! We will definitely be back.
