BOSCOBEL - The 2016 Boscobel Farmer’s Market is off to a great start. Twelve vendors were present last Saturday, June 18, with a wide variety of products. Available for customers were everything from meat and eggs to leather, wood, and soap products. Strawberries, onions, and radishes have been available for the last few weeks, and now peas and beans as well. Several types of greens, from a few vendors, have made salad making a cinch.
This Saturday, June 25th, will be a very busy one at the market. Queen Bee radio, out of Platteville, will be on site all morning, with promotional and giveaway items. “Living History” will be the theme, with a demonstration hosted by David and Barbara Thyren of Boscobel. Visitors will learn about how the war impacted the soldier, his family, and the roles they played as Union supporters during the Civil War. The GAR will also have volunteers on site.
