Do you look forward to the farmers markets?
My wife, Cheryl, and I enjoy visiting the local farmers markets, particularly the convenient Janesville Farmers Market downtown. Besides picking out plants, fresh produce and baked goods, we enjoy taking time to chat with friends and neighbors.
So it was nice to read, in today’s Gazette, separate stories about the downtown market reopening this Saturday and the Rock County Farmers Market, west of Janesville on Highway 11, reopening Sunday, May 20.
Unfortunately, I’ll miss the downtown market this weekend, but maybe I can talk Cheryl into stopping by to pick up a block of that award-winning Havarti cheese from the Decatur Dairy booth. That’s right, the Brodhead dairy you might have read about in a Gazette story April 19 has had a booth at the market in downtown Janesville. That Havarti makes for delicious sandwiches.
Which farmers market do you most enjoy and patronize—the one in Janesville, the Rock County Farmers Market on Sundays, or perhaps the Beloit one or the Dane County market on the Capitol Square? What most attracts you to your favorite?
