We think it's very simple: there is just nothing better than a summer farmers market in Wisconsin. It's a chance for our local growers to show off their goods, while consumers get a refreshing break from the corporate supermarket. Throw in some live music, crafts, fresh flowers and clean summer air, and you've got yourself a homegrown good time.
