Farmer's Market: West Allis
We finally made it out to the West Allis farmer's market this weekend (in between drops of rain). Established in approximately 1919, the West Allis Farmers Market has been a source of fine fresh produce for generations of families. Grandparents and parents have brought their children and relatives to shop at one of the largest, if not the oldest, established Farmers Markets in southeastern Wisconsin. The grounds were newly renovated in 2007, and now provide one of the finest market experiences in the Milwaukee area.
That's Lo standing to the right of the sign.
As it turns out, there was Very Little produce at the market (we did spy some baby bok choy, and a few vendors offered spinach). But, we did see lots and lots of lovely flowers.
We ended up talking ourselves into a couple of early hydroponic tomatoes, but otherwise ended up empty handed for this week.
Thank goodness for our CSA!
