Menominee Farmers Market

 

The Kehtekaewak Farmers Market is the only farmers market on the Menominee Reservation. Read more about the market, using EBT/SNAP benefits, and how you can become a market vendor here.

 

Stop by the Kehtekaewak Farmers Market this summer on Fridays from noon to 5 p.m. The market runs through October, and is located at Veterans Memorial Park downtown Keshena.

 

Vendors from Menominee and the surrounding area will be present to sell fresh produce, meats, hot food, and crafts. Don’t have any cash on you? No problem. Use your credit, debit, or EBT/SNAP card at the farmers market.

 

Night Moon Market

The Night Moon Market is a small winter farmers’ market held on the College of Menominee Nation campus. Started in 2016, the market ran every other Thursday from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. December through March during its first season. The market takes place in the Atrium between Shirley Daly and Glen Miller Halls on the College of Menominee Nation Keshena campus.

 

Double Dollars Program

Customers receiving FoodShare benefits may use their Quest cards to purchase food at the market. Due to a generous grant from the First Nations Development Institute, we’re offering a DOLLAR-PER-DOLLAR MATCH for purchases made with FoodShare benefits. For example, if you buy $6 of produce and pay with your Quest card, we’ll only charge you $3 and cover the rest!
