A big part of the inspiration for this blog came from the fact that we live very close to an amazing Farmers Market.
The West Allis Farmers Market began in 1919, and it runs three times a week, though Saturdays are the best day. At this time of the season, the stands are mostly selling plants for the garden, but you can find some great veggies if you know how to look!
Check out this haul from this past weekend:
That’s lettuce, spring onions, rainbow chard, and strawberries. My friend, who came with me, bought some kolrabi and garlic scapes. We also bought a few plants - basil, mint, and jalapenos!
I’m looking forward to watching the market grow and change over the coming months.
Here are a few more photos:
The crowd - it’s always packed on Saturdays!
