  • That Salsa Lady,

  • Pete's Pops,

  • Mai Doua Vang Flowers,

  • Sandy Yang produce, and

  • Big Yellow Farmhouse. They will be here for most of the markets. 

New vendors include:

  • Be Gluten Free with Me -- a local vendor selling home-baked, gluten-free goods.

  • OMJ Gardens from New Berlin - selling heirloom vegetables, honey, hive products, flowers, plant starts, pollinator plants, and doll quilts later in the season

  • JBC Pottery - a half-season vendor selling ceramic vessels

  • Bear's Bakery - a half-season vendor selling homemade dog treats and some cat treats

Additional vendors would be welcome. (For example, does anyone know someone who sells homemade cheese?) More volunteers are also needed."It's going to be a long, wonderful season and the committee could use more help," says Linda Tanner, who co-chairs the committee with Celeste Hallisey. To sign up for volunteer slots, offer suggestions or ask questions, email:
