New stall rental Policies
For thirty years the West Bend Farmers Market has thrived to the point where it was just voted the best farmers market in Wisconsin. Each Saturday, thousands of visitors enjoy the vendors, their produce, the company of their friends and neighbors, the setting, and the friendliness of it all. The imagery and rhetoric displayed last Saturday at the market was completely unacceptable and does not reflect the mission and values of the Downtown West Bend Association who organize the market.
After careful consideration, reinforced by overwhelming feedback from our community, the Downtown West Bend Association’s Board of Directors has come to a final decision, stating, “effective immediately, the West Bend Farmers Market will not accept applications from political organizations, affiliations, and/or politically motivated entities to rent stalls at the West Bend Farmers Market.”
The Mission of the West Bend Farmers Market is to aid in securing the future of locally grown sustainable foods, increasing support for sustainable farmers, educating our community, and providing direct access to nutritious fresh foods. We also strongly believe in community, providing our community and guests with an amazing Downtown West Bend experience, promoting local shops, restaurants, and business. The market is here for the local farmers, shops, artisans, and the West Bend and wider communities.
