Milwaukee Public Market.

Milwaukee, WISC:  Statement from the Milwaukee Public Market executive director, Paul Schwartz:

Based on the new guidelines set out by the State, the market has no choice but to enforce a full closure to the public, effective immediately, until further notice. This includes customers for carry-out and to-go orders.

A number of our vendors are exploring curbside pickup and delivery services and we will get information out about that offering in the coming days.

In addition, vendors are making plans to donate existing food and other products to many of their employees, as well as first responder groups and food pantries.

This is obviously the most challenging time the public market and much of the greater Milwaukee community has ever faced. But I have never seen such comradery, support and encouragement among our management team and the vendors. During a difficult time we all did what we could to help and encourage each other. It has exemplified the “magic of the market” and how resilient and amazing this family is.

I can speak for all of us at the market when I say we will continue to work tirelessly to help steer us through this situation and eventually reopen with the same vigor and energy that people have grown to expect from us.

From the bottom of our hearts, we thank everyone who supported, and continues to support us throughout this period. We want everyone to stay healthy and safe.
