Capital City Farmers’ Market – Saturday, May 19 – 9am-noon

Rain or shine, we’ll be at market Saturday. One of my favorite memories from our trips abroad was at a farmers’ market in Strasbourg, France. It was a rainy Saturday morning when we strolled through the market using our lime green umbrella with blue polka dots, which I had packed…just in case, to shield us from the rain. We wandered through a sea of umbrellas, stopping at each vendor, selecting items for the week. I loved making my way through the crowd, lifting our umbrella to pass by another customer, enjoying the sense of community, and immersing ourselves into their local food scene. Let’s have that same feeling of community and local food this Saturday.

Face Painting is back this weekend! Meridith will be painting fun and bright creations on all the kiddos.

Bad River Pack and Hanisch Farms are joining us for the first time this season. After a winter down South, Don and Mary of Bad River Pack are ready to share their tasty meat snacks and adorable crafted items with us. And, Hanisch Farms will take over their “space” on the end with a trailer loaded with meaty goodness!

As a market, we accept credit cards and EBT. Shop vendors who accept cc/EBT and pay once before you leave! Stop at the Market Manager booth to start the process and have fun shopping.
