Revel in the choice of Farmer’s Market items, fall produce such as raspberries, garden produce in abundance, apples and wonderful other fall items. Don’t miss the Amish quilts, baskets, crafts, baked goods like maple-glazed donuts, fruit pies, granola, cookies and Hot Pepper Jam (great for a Badger or Packer Tailgate). Another local vendor, Robert Jelinek will be selling his 2013 season Maple Syrup so get some while supplies last.
What else will you see? How about the artistry of Larry Gehl, a local and award winning woodcraft artist! His woodturnings, which include bowls and other pieces, really have to be seen for you to fully appreciate how magnificent his work is. Sharon Gehl, a well-known area quilter, is also offering her quilt art for sale. This is not to be missed so get here early.
Other artists include jewelry art, Holly Dougherty with scarves and textile arts. Christine Magnuson brings her photographic art, which includes cards and books. Molly Swift is here with her unique hand woven baskets and also her quilts.
For those of you who love ‘Tool Time,’ our regular at the market, Everette Johnson, has a fantastic selection that will have something for everyone.
Grass Roots BBQ is back! They have the most fantastic lip lickin’ BBQ around with the trimmings of coleslaw and more.
