A business, but free to wander through
It's a food-lover's paradise at this massive market, which houses shops and restaurants selling ingredients, drinks and cuisine from all around the globe.
Since it opened in October 2005, the Milwaukee Public Market has anchored the city's Historic Third Ward neighborhood and provided patrons with a vast array of ingredients and foods from nearby and all over the world. The block-long space harbors nearly two dozen merchants, including delis, fishmongers, confectionaries, exotic-food sellers, spice markets, coffeehouses, a wine store (with its own bistro and bar), cafs and a cookware shop. (And if you still can't find what you're looking for, there's a good chance it might be at the adjunct Good Harvest Market, an organic and holistic retailer kitty-corner across the street.) Upstairs at the Public Market is a large communal area often used for public events or classes. Check the building's Web site for a schedule.
