Farmer's Market Café

The Farmer's Market Cafe at American Family Children's Hospital focuses on healthy, local food.The Farmer's Market Café is located on the main floor of the American Family Children's Hospital and features custom-made sandwich, salad and beverage selections that are delicious and healthy. Our café demonstrates our commitment to not only provide delicious food selections but also to lead the way in modeling food choices for our patients, families and visitors.

  • My Smart Choice: All Farmer's Market selections are My Smart Choice items, meaning they are healthy food and beverage options that meet standards established by UW Hospital and Clinics Clinical Nutrition staff and guided by the Dietary Guidelines for Americans.
  • Buy Fresh, Buy Local: As part of our commitment to health and the local community, the Farmer's Market will feature as much fresh, local and seasonal produce as possible. With this initiative American Family Children's Hospital supports sustainability, as the average food miles for Market produce is only 56 miles, while offering better taste and nutrition, as fresh fruits and vegetables consumed immediately after harvest have more nutrients and better flavor.
