Harvest at the Homestead, Saturday, 6/16/12

Greetings from the Stahl-Conrad Homestead,

Our first market of the season is this Saturday June 16th.

NEW EXHIBIT: The Stahl-Conrad Homestead has put together a new exhibit this year, "Toys of Yesteryear", which will be open during all 2012 markets. This exhibit features treasured childhood mementos.

VENDORS: Most of our produce vendors from last year are returning, including Hack Farms, Ma V. Cha, Tshengzoo Lor, and Viola's Honey along with a new vendor 'Ruegsegger Farms' who in addition to produce and baked/canned items will have a variety of frozen Wisconsin produced meats. You can also pre-order from their website:
Sweet Somethings (baked goods), and the Friends of the Hales Corners Pool (fresh brewed coffee and one pound bags) should once again grace the market, along with baked goods from Gemma Rae's Cheesecake Cafe (located in Hales Corners).

Handmade Art and Craft vendors at the first market of the season include Curly Fleece Sheep Farm, Optimist Theater (flower garlands).
LIVE MUSIC will be provided this Saturday by Brenna Beecroft.

PRODUCE THIS WEEK: I'm not up to speed yet on what specific produce will be available from our vendors this Saturday, but I expect to see:

Variety of lettuces and greens
Herbs, such as cilantro, parsley, basil, dill, etc.
among other early crops such as asparagus and broccoli....

I'll try to compile a more complete list for future market email updates.
I myself will not be at the market this week, but find Bette Arey if you have any questions about the markets or the Homestead.
