Waupaca Farm Market opens for season
The Waupaca Farm Market’s season is scheduled to begin on Saturday, May 10.
The market in downtown Waupaca will be open from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturdays.
On Saturday, May 10, they will hold a food drive. People may bring non-perishable food donations to the market. The donations will be delivered to the Waupaca Area Food Pantry.
There will again be a Wednesday market. That market is beginning a little bit earlier this year. The Wednesday market will be from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
During the first few weeks, those who visit the markets will be able to purchase meat, fresh eggs, preserves, honey and maple syrup, freshly roasted coffee beans and brewed coffee, homemade soaps and lotions, storage crops like carrots, beets and potatoes, hoophouse greens, wild foraged greens and mushrooms.
People will also be able to sign up for CSA subscriptions with the farmers who offer them.
Most of the vendors who were at last year’s markets will be back, with several new vendors, too.
The market’s organizers are also working with the USDA to accept SNAP benefits and credits cards and expect to be able to offer that service by late spring or early summer.
The Waupaca Farm Market’s grand opening is scheduled for Saturday, June 14. It will include activities for the whole family.
