I was in Milwaukee over the weekend and had the opportunity to check out the Milwaukee Public Market and the Historic Third Ward.
The Milwaukee Public Market is similar to Columbus’s North Market as an upscale foodie destination, with unique food shops and great places to eat. The Milwaukee Public Market is a large newer building with spacious aisles and lots of places to sit. Cincinnati’s Findlay Market in comparison is narrower, a bit grittier, and a lot older, but has much more of a working market feel.
The eating establishments make the Milwaukee Public Market a destination for both the lunch and dinner crowd, staying open on weekdays until 8pm.
