I'm sure by the third week of classes you have all come to the realization that there is a never ending amount of sites and things to do within the fine city of Milwaukee. As future healthcare professionals, I think it's important that you are aware of one of Milwaukee's most notable and unique restaurants/markets (and healthiest, too). The Milwaukee Public Market, located in the city's Historic Third Ward, offers visitors high quality and delicious ethnic and artisan products, along with other freshly prepared foods. The market itself is constituted of local, independent food merchants. If you don't feel like picking up a few fresh items at the market, you can bring a few friends and have breakfast, lunch, or dinner at one of their restaurant options. If you're up for a fresh, custom salad, check out The Green Kitchen. In the mood for European food? Check out the Benelux Grand Cafe and market. There are several other options including a sushi bar, cheese and sausage shop, and many more that you can explore for yourself!
The Milwaukee Public Market is located in the city's Historic Third Ward at 401 N. Water Street. Their hours are Monday-Friday 10 a.m.-8 p.m., Saturday 8 a.m.-7 p.m., and Sunday 10 a.m.-6 p.m. You can utilize your UPass and take route 30 (Green Line) to get to the Milwaukee Public Market. I hope you'll find time during your first year in Milwaukee to visit this tremendous destination!
