Stahl-Conrad Homestead Farmers Markets

Greetings from the Stahl-Conrad Homestead,  Our 9th market of the season is this Saturday October 8th from 8am-Noon.

After this week, there is only one more market left this season (10/22).

SPECIALTY BOOTH: This week it's APPLES, APPLES, APPLES.  The Conrad family will be on hand to demonstrate apple pressing on an old apple press. Come take a turn on the machine and help make cider.

Check out the delightful offerings of our apple vendor, Jerry's Orchard.
I'll also be providing some musical ambiance again this week (guitar/vocals) periodically between 9am and 11am. 

SNAP / QWEST: We are now able to accept SNAP funds (ie. Qwest Card) at the market. We have an electronic (EBT) point of sale (POS) unit in the kitchen of the house where SNAP recipients can obtain wooden tokens to purchase eligible foods at the market. We are NOT able to accept Credit/Debit purchases at this time. 

REGULAR VENDORS:  For a listing of vendors and upcoming events, visit our website at: 

NEW EXHIBIT: The Stahl-Conrad Homestead has put together a new exhibit this year, "Making a Living on the Land", which will be open during all 2011 markets. It features the agricultural history of Hales Corners and the surrounding area. Using the numerous artifacts donated by Lloyd Conrad and other members and friends of the Homestead, the exhibit will recall the early days of the village—a time when Hales Corners was a farm community that supplied the growing city of Milwaukee. 

Hope to see you on Saturday.
