Produce, flowers, crafts available
A farmer’s market and vendor fair will be held on two more Saturdays this summer in Weyauwega.
They will be held from 9 a.m to 4 p.m. on Aug. 20 and Sept. 17, at 303 N. Mill St.
The first one took place on July 16.
That is when John Reindl, of Farmer John’s Produce, joined with several vendors, as well as with Weyauwega VFW Post 10407 to begin what they hope will become an annual tradition.
Farmer John’s Produce operates a stand on the lot across from KD’s IGA, where a bowling alley once stood.
This month’s farmer’s market and vendor and craft fair included nonprofit organizations, businesses and individuals.
Weyauwega VFW Post 10407 sold brats, hamburgers, cheeseburgers and hotdogs.
Two area greenhouse nurseries – Lind Center Greenhouse and White Lake Nursery I & II – brought flowering plants to the event.
Farmer John sold fresh, locally grown and picked vegetables, including sweet corn.
MAM Crafts featured painted wooden paper plate holders painted by artist Mary Miller.
White Lake Preservation Club offered information about the club’s projects on White Lake.
Animal Haven Zoo sold stuffed animals and animal feed for use at their zoo, which us located off of County Trunk X, west of Weyauwega.
Country Pride 4-H Club served root beer floats.
Those who stopped by the event were from as far away as Milwaukee and its suburbs.
Congressional candidates were also among those who visited the market.
Organizers see the event as a way to put money back into the local economy while also demonstrating Weyauwega is a community of businesses, organizations and people who are unified.
