Solar Array to Power to the Garden District Farmers’ Market

One of Milwaukee’s most prominent solar arrays, which are solar panels that absorb and directly convert sunlight into electricity, is coming to the Garden District Farmers’ Market this summer. Designed to look like the petals of a flower, this installation will stand 20 feet above the market and community gardens on South 6th Street, between Howard and Norwich Ave. The energy supplied by the photovoltaic installation will serve vendors at the farmers’ market and help to circulate the rainwater that is collected on the site.

The Garden District Farmers’ Market will be held on Saturdays from 1:00-5:00 p.m. beginning on June 13 and running through October 17. The farmers’ market is host to traditional produce vendors, as well as specialty vendors, including: That Salsa Lady, Soap of the Earth, Sugar Bee Farm, etc.
