This Week at the Market....

DICKEY HILL FARM

It’s been a chilly spring but the weather  forecast finally showing some warmer days and nights ahead which means it’s time to get those gardens planted! Dickey Hill Farm will be bringing a wide selection of seedlings to market to get your growing off to a good start. Our seedlings are MOFGA certified organic and grown in a wood heated greenhouse. Don’t forget that SNAP and Harvest Bucks can be used for food producing seedlings!
APPLETON CREAMERY

We are OVERSTOCKED with Granite Kiss! We’ll be offering a special this week. Come early!

This is the time of year when I get excited and make too much cheese. All it takes is one rainy market day, and I have too much perfect cheese left over. Help me get it in your mouth! We are at market every Friday, rain or shine. We hope you will be too.
