You might be asking yourself: well, if I go to the Market this weekend, what will I find? Here is a guide
Just because its early in the season doesn't mean there aren't lots of great produce and treats available at the Market! Visit in the late spring through early summer and you'll find goods like asparagus, spinach, root crops, chicken, beef, goat cheese, annual and perennial flowers, baked goods, jewelry, crafts, and preserves
In the heat of summer you know where to find your seasonal produce like tomatoes, strawberries, raspberries, honey, herbs, and
mixed greens like swiss chard and lettuce. You will also continue to find meats, cheeses, baked goods, crafts, flowers and plants, jewelry, and preserves.
The Winneshiek Farmers Market in Decorah is an outdoor market that operates Wednesdays (3-6pm) and Saturdays (8-11am) from May 2 through October 31. Special indoor markets occur at the Winneshiek County Fairgrounds on November 7th and 21st and December 5th and 19th, 2015.
You will frequently meet up to 40 vendors, live music, and a colorful selection of produce, crafts, baked goods, meat and dairy products.
When you're at the Saturday Market, keep an eye out for the Food Education Booth! Members of the Oneota Community Food Co-op education staff will be on site most Saturday mornings with a tent just for food and children! Each week they will have a mini lesson for the children, along with interactive activities. This is the perfect compliment to the fresh, local food you are purchasing at market. The goal is to help connect the dots between growing and eating food. Stop by for a quick sample or stay awhile and play. Check the Special Events Calendar every week for updated information.
