More than 100 local vendors are participating in the 2022 Milwaukee Night Market, according to the Westown Association. The Night Market returned to Downtown Milwaukee this summer for a full season for the first time since 2019 – with its third of four dates coming up on Wednesday, Aug. 17 starting at 5 p.m. 

Taking place on West Wisconsin Avenue between 2nd Street and Vel R. Phillips Avenue, the diverse lineup of vendors features a variety of artists, restaurateurs, farmers, crafters and makers of all sorts that will showcase their talents to an estimated 20,000 attendees each night.

After this Wednesday's edition, the final Night Market – which are always free to attend – is set for Wednesday, Sept. 21 from 5 to 10 p.m.

“We were thrilled to have over 300 local small businesses apply to vend at the 2022 Markets from which our team has curated an exciting list of vendors that represent the diversity of our city,” said Stacie Callies, Executive Director of Westown Association.

Returning vendors include Meat on the Street, Happy Dough Lucky, James Steeno Gallery and LIT MKE, alongside plenty of new faces up and down the Night Market. 

For the second year, American Family Insurance will sponsor the vendors fees for 10 entrepreneurs that offer ethnic diversity and gender parity. The 10 sponsored vendors are Baked Dream Creations, Blossom Candle, Chase My Creations, Clay Creations by Kayla, Dougie’s Delights, Harmony By Design, Outwoken Tea, Spicy Freza Apparel, T for Textile and Tostada by Maranta.

 “Small businesses, especially diverse businesses, are the economic engine of our country and we want to support these bold entrepreneurs in a variety of ways, including amplifying their brands via storytelling and through social media channels. We’re proud to support these amazingly talented entrepreneurs," says Ranell Washington, American Family community and social impact advisor.
