  • The Milwaukee Public Market has something for everyone. I would recommend that you don't go during peak lunch hour your first time as it can be overwhelming and you'll want to take it all in before deciding what you want to purchase. The bakeries are perfect for grabbing treats to go, they even have a wine bar, and this would be a great place to go if you want a really fun Milwaukee or Wisconsin shirt.
  • Parking was tough, compact car is a must. Atmosphere was great. Many people from all over the world buying food. I ate the seafood restaurant on the southeast side. The blue marlin grilled was to die for. Of course its the best deal for a lobster dinner. One of the two drinks not prepared correctly.
  • Love this place! Such an adorable go-to if you have friends in town and want to show them a typical day. The staff at each booth are friendly and courteous and are willing to help if you have questions. The prices can sometimes be high, but because everything is fresh and high quality, it's worth the price. I highly suggest the cheese, wine, and dessert stations, along with the Green Kitchen for a freshly-made juice.
  • One of my favorite markets. I never leave without having a Schlitz and a bowl of clam chowder...
  • Great Place to get Lunch, or some fresh seafood for Dinner. I recommend the Public Market for anyone visiting the third Ward. 👍🏻
