In a few short days, the Haymarket will be transformed and filled again with the sights, smells and sounds of the Farmer’s Market. It will start at 8 a.m. on Saturday, May 3 when Louie blows the opening whistle.
Some things to look forward to this year:
Buffalo is back! Randy and Jane Miller, of Miller Bison Inc. in Adams, will have bison meat for sale.
Manila Bay's lumpias (veggie egg rolls) and spring rolls, hot out of the fryer
To her fellow chocolate hounds, Linda recommends chocolate cupcakes and huge chocolate and peanut butter rice krispie treats from PJ Baby Cakes, and Michelle with Biscotti Mommy specializes in a variety of flavors of biscotti
Louie recommends Gary Zicafoose's “Maizingly Sweet” sweet corn, as well as sweet corn sold by the Daniels family (affectionately known as the “melon girls”)
Louie's tried beef jerky from just about everybody over the years and keeps coming back to the jerky made by Willis, from Frank's Smokehouse in Wilber. His colaches are excellent too.
Among my personal favorites are Ty Gardner's Wisconsin Cheese booth—where you can find really delicious “squeaky” cheese curds, among other cheesy goodness
