MILWAUKEE – Westown Association announced the vendor lineup for the 2023 season of the Milwaukee Night Market presented by Clover® from Fiserv. Over 180 local businesses will participate in the summer event, transforming West Wisconsin Avenue into a unique environment for individuals of all ages and backgrounds to experience the best that Milwaukee has to offer.

The diverse lineup of vendors features a variety of artists, restaurateurs, farmers, crafters and makers of all sorts that will showcase their talents to the estimated 30,000 attendees each night.

The 2023 Night Markets will be held on June 14, July 19, August 16 and September 13 from 5 to 10 p.m. on West Wisconsin Avenue between 2nd Street and Vel R. Phillips Avenue. This year, the event footprint has expanded to include 2nd Street between Wells Street and Michigan Street, adding nearly 20 more vendor booths.

“We had an overwhelming number of applications for 2023, with over 450 businesses applying to vend at the Milwaukee Night Market,” said Stacie Callies, Executive Director of Westown Association. “Our curation team thoughtfully reviewed each and every application with the goal of featuring as many businesses as possible that represent the diversity of our city. There will be something for everyone at each Market, and we can’t wait to see the thousands of people show up to support these local entrepreneurs.”

“We are thrilled to host this vibrant downtown experience, featuring a variety of Milwaukee small businesses – many of which run on Clover from Fiserv,” said Bob Hau, Chief Financial Officer, Fiserv. “Whether powering the fan experience at Fiserv Forum or powering the passion and purpose of local entrepreneurs, we’re enabling businesses with a complete small business management platform and flexible payment capabilities that they can use virtually anywhere – online, in store and at outdoor venues like the Night Market. We are fans of Milwaukee and of small businesses, an essential part of the fabric of our community, and we look forward to cultivating more fans of both as this great event gets underway!”

Attendees can expect legacy vendors at the Night Market including Lush Popcorn, Tots on the Street, Yoko Ceramic and Nourish Natural Products, as well as entrepreneurs making their Night Market debut such as:
