Milwaukee Public Market

Milwaukee Public Market.

This place was so cool we went twice. We drove to Milwaukee last Saturday to spend the night at the downtown Hilton. The have an indoor water park and the kids love it. I get to watch HBO and drink beer. But before we checked in we stopped at the public market.

At the West Allis Cheese Shoppe, we got some cold pack beer cheese and a little summer sausage.

At the St. Paul Fish Company we had a cup of the shrimp and sausage gumbo.

The smoked fish case looked pretty nice.

Sushi a- Go- Go, had the Hawaiian Big Plate Lunch. This place was a revelation: Giant pork buns called Manapua.

Pulled pork baked into a bun, Manapua? More like Manna from Heaven.

The next day we stared at the beautiful displays of cured meat at Ceriello Fine Foods.

From Ceriello's we got a mozzarella tomato and basil panini.

We drank a lot of coffee from Cedarburg's and got chocolate covered Oreos from Kehr's Candies.

All the stores there looked great including an outpost of The Spice House. If you are visiting Milwaukee, the public market is a great place to stop and load up. A couple other places to go is the flagship Spice House location on Third St and right across the street from there is the Usinger sausage factory. Good times.
