Between the pristine lake-adjacent setting, the wide selection of local goods, and its proximity to a beer garden, the South Shore Farmers Market is one of the best parts of summer in Milwaukee. Adding to the allure of freshly popped kettle corn, homegrown produce, cold brew coffee, and those incomparable tamales from Lopez Bakery that all help make the long-running Bay View farmers market great is the presence of free, family-friendly live music.

The 24th year of South Shore Farmers Market will kick off on Saturday, June 18 and continue on each and every Saturday through October 29. The farmers market’s live entertainment will also begin on June 18 and will continue each week until October 1. This year’s lineup—which run 10-11:15 a.m. unless otherwise noted—includes a vast and varied cast of musicians including renowned Massachusetts singer-songwriter Peter Mulvey, Liv Mueller (of The Lovelies fame), a rare live outing by Painted Caves, appearances by local favorites like Matthew Davies and Alyssia Dominguez, and many more.
