Farmers Market Starts This Saturday, June 20 - Our Biggest Ever!

One of Appleton's terrific traditions is the summer Farmers Market which goes from June into early October. It all begins this Saturday, June 20, on College Avenue. It's the second largest farmers market in the state, second only to the massive Madison market that lines the four sides of the State Capital building. This year we have 150 vendors signed up, much more than we've had before. There will be music, great food, lots of fresh produce, and plenty of art. Can't wait!

While downtown, be sure to stop in to a new hot spot of artistic excitement in Appleton, Downtown Designs, an excitement new boutique with art, decorations, and designs (113 East College Avenue). Just stopped in tonight with my wife and loved the place. Found the best pepper grinder ever, one that is made by Wisconsin artist John Hoffman. Beautiful and the most functional, easy-to-use design I've seen. Bought it as a birthday present for my wife. Sweet.
