Harvest at the Homestead, Saturday, 10/13/12

Greetings from the Stahl-Conrad Homestead,

Our 9th market of the season is this Saturday, Oct. 13th from 8am to Noon. This is our 2nd to last market of the season (last one is on Oct. 27th). 

MANAGER RETIRING:  It is with a heavy heart that I am announcing after nine years of managing the market, I will be stepping down at the end of this season. With my absence, the market will likely need someone or a group of people to step forward to manage it if the market is to continue next year. Attendance has been down. If you enjoy having a market at the Homestead, and wish it to continue, I encourage you to attend the last two markets to show your support. If any of you are interested in helping manage and grow the market, please contact me before the end of the month. 

PREPARED FOODS:  Sweet Somethings (baked goods), Friends of the Hales Corners Pool (fresh brewed hot & iced coffee, and one pound bags), and Gemma Rae's Cheesecake Cafe (located in Hales Corners), and possibly a Wildtree vendor. 

PRODUCE:  Come early for the best selections. Expect to see Hack Farms, Ma V. Cha, Tshengzoo Lor, and Viola's Honey along with 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: 

CRAFTS:  Hummer Hill Wood Crafts will be selling their beautifully hand crafted wood products. They create a variety of items that make great gifts.

HOMESTEAD 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.
