This Week ~ June 28
This Week at the Market
The summer produce selection at the Monona Farmers’ Market is expanding. You’ll find fresh-picked strawberries, heirloom tomatoes, sugar snap peas, beets, kohlrabi, radishes, lettuce, spinach, summer squash and more. There is everything you need to create great summer salads and side dishes.
With the 4th of July just around the corner, it’s a perfect time to shop for the holiday . Stop by Chef K, Clark for pickles and preserves, Chippy’s for kettle corn, Farmer John’s for cheese and cheese curds, the Salsa Man for a variety of salsas, Tom and Carrie’s for honey and Stella’s Bakery and Stalzy’s Deli for baked goods. Don’t forget the flowers! Choose from flowering plants, hanging baskets and fresh cut flowers as you create your festive atmosphere.
This week’s live music is the Rodeo Bums, a ragtag bunch of musicians, some born in Wisconsin and some drawn here by fate, who play the kind of music sung only by those who have lived hard enough to mean it. Theirs is country with a rock n’ roll attitude.
The popular “Class in the Grass” offered by JOY in YOGA goes from 9:00 to 10:00. There’s no cost to join the group and start your day with a great workout.
The market, located at Ahuska Park, 400 East Broadway, is open every Sunday from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm through October 25th. EBT/Quest accepted.
