There’s been plenty of talk and excitement about downtown Janesville. Re-imagining what our center city will be is great! The future is wonderful, but starting Saturday it will be awesome on Main Street as the Janesville Farmers Market makes its 2018 debut!
You can head to several different community pages to see what sort of product will be there. For our family, it’s ‘who’ will be there that makes us happy. I can get produce or vendor-made wear just about anywhere but the folks who setup shop each week is the difference maker.
The space with flowers and produce in front of Riversedge Chiropractic isn’t just any space. That’s Mr. Zucchini. Mr. Olive? He’s from McFarland and will be at the market on Saturday. Mrs. Honey and Mrs. Cheese Curd will be there — and I can guarantee they’ll greet everyone with a smile and will be as helpful as ever. That’s why we visit each Saturday.
I can’t fault my friends for visiting the Madison market on Saturday morning. It’s one of the largest markets in the nation. Maybe that’s why I appreciate our market. It isn’t overwhelming. You won’t have to elbow your way to the front of the line, and you’ll definitely be able to get to know your produce vendors. It’s a great size and has experienced smart growth … and continues to grow!
The weather looks perfect for the first market day. If all goes as planned, my daughter and I will wander down and run into market friends Wilson and John. After that, it will be time to catch up … and load up! It’s been a long winter, and the Janesville Farmers Market is the perfect cure to shed the last bit of winter blues.
Will I see you on Main Street this Saturday? Let me know on Facebook or Twitter.
