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 25th year of South Shore Farmers Market will kick off on Saturday, June 17 and continue on each and every Saturday through October 28. The farmers market’s live entertainment will also begin on June 17 and will continue each week until September 30. This year’s lineup—which run 10-11:15 a.m. unless otherwise noted—includes a vast and varied cast of musicians including Fox & Branch, The Squeezettes, Heirloom, Robin Pluer & Friends, Milwaukee Mandolin Orchestra, and many more.
