DeForest, WI:  Market to Open May 8th


This has been a strange spring season! We’ve had some beautiful days in the 60s but many cooler nights that slow down the growing process.

We are guessing that the market will be ready to open next week with crops that will have a warm week to add some growth.

Those of you that are looking for your Forest Run Farm CSA punchcards, no need to worry, we will have them ready for you at your first pick up.

What to expect to find in a week or 2: green onions, green garlic, leeks, spinach, lettuce, rhubarb, asparagus and herbs. Forest Run Farm will also have certified organic vegetable and herb plants available for your home garden. Bauman’s will be providing fresh eggs. Note, the plants and eggs can not be purchased with the CSA punchcard.

Market News

Mother’s Day is already coming up next weekend, and if it’s flowers and plants you’re looking for, I think we’ve got you covered. There are flower bouquets, annual flowering plants, container plants ready to go into the ground or your pots, and more are available from of growers this week. There are generally a number of plant sales hosted by local organizations around town this week. I haven’t gotten any details on any this year, but keep your eyes open for signs pointing the way to one.

It was a great week for local arts and crafts, food businesses, and our independent book store. Lots of events came together this weekend, what with the Human Rights Festival, the Indie South Artisan Fair, and activities over at Avid Books on Prince. Yeah, the rain came down hard at times, but my household had a great time anyway, eating from the food trucks, talking to the artisans, playing some games, and bringing some art home with us. It’s always ridiculously easy to find locally made things in this town, but I enjoy it even more when there are festivals that bring it all together in one place.

Thank you so much for your support of Athens Locally Grown, all of our growers, local food, and our rights to eat it. You all are part of what makes Athens such a great area in which to live. We’ll see you on Thursday at Ben’s Bikes at the corner of Pope and Broad Streets from 4:30 to 8pm!

The Athens Farmers Market is open on Saturdays at Bishop Park and Wednesday afternoons downtown at Creature Comforts. You can catch the news on their website. The West Broad Farmers Market from the Athens Land Trust is open Saturday mornings and their farm stand is open Tuesday afternoons. They have a website too.
