When cooler temperatures arrive, Kenosha HarborMarket doesn’t end – we just move the shopping party indoors. That’s right, Kenosha HarborMarket is a year-round market. This year, the indoor market takes up residence at a new location in the Kenosha Masonic Center, 115 56th Street in Downtown Kenosha, just south of the Kenosha Public Museum.
If you love the fresh produce, local meats and cheeses, crafts, and live music of the summertime outdoor market you’ll love the Winter Market. You can find all the same great offerings, just on a slightly smaller scale. Each week 30-plus vendors will fill the Kenosha Masonic Center and the sidewalks outside with their goods. From winter produce and prepared foods, fresh meat, cheese, and eggs, to crafts, sweets, and freshly baked bread, there is something for everyone. And yes, there is still live entertainment.
You’ll find olive oil, mushrooms, popcorn, apples, eggs, beef, chicken, greenhouse heirloom vegetables and microgreens, coffee, fair trade baskets, ethnic cuisine, pastries and pies, jams, all-natural cheeses, pasta, chocolates, dog biscuits, spices, bread, and more! Each week the vendor lineup changes offering a great variety for shoppers. If you want to arrive ready to shop, be sure to visit KenoshaHarborMarket.com on Thursdays to check out the latest vendor map or to sign up for weekly newsletter updates.
Did you know that you can use your SNAP/EBT card at HarborMarket, too? Shoppers receiving Supplemental Nutrition Assistance can use their cards to purchase tokens at the Market information booth to shop with select approved vendors. Kenosha HarborMarket even offers a matching program to double some of your dollars for added shopping credit. Talk to one of our staff or board members to learn more.
Grab your market basket or purchase one of our reusable HarborMarket shopping bags and fill it up with great local products at this Saturday. We’ve got a great new location for our 12th season of the WinterMarket and plenty of fun to fill your Saturday mornings this winter, October 19th – May 9, 2020 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
