Farmers Market

January 1, 2020

Dear Manitowoc Farmers Market Vendor:

The Manitowoc community is poised for another exciting year of enjoying fresh, local foods, local art, and craft goods in the Downtown Farmers Market, and we invite you to continue your participation in it for 2020! The operation of the Market for 2020 will remain downtown along the riverfront. 

As always, vendors have the choice and opportunity to participate at other venues as you see fit, but the official Manitowoc Famers Market will remain downtown. The City will be advertising and marketing the downtown location throughout the 2020 season. 

The City has received notice from Grow It Forward that they are not intending on managing the downtown Manitowoc Farmers Market for the 2020 season. The City’s current agreement with Grow It Forward expired on January 1, 2020. As a result, the City is in the process of hiring a new market manager for the 2020 season to keep the momentum going in the downtown riverfront location. 

If you have any questions regarding the 2020 Manitowoc Farmers Market, please direct your questions to the either the Mayor’s office or the Community Development Department.

Additional information on reserving your location, market rules and policies, agreements, and applications will be provided at a later date. We will work to get this information out as soon as possible to you. 

The City looks forward to working with all of you to ensure that another successful year of the Manitowoc Farmers Market occurs in the downtown along the beautiful and reinvigorated riverfront.


Mayor Justin M. Nickels
