YMCA Farmers Market Begins Second Year

YMCA of the Northwoods

An inside Farmer's Market is beginning its second year at the YMCA of the Northwoods in Rhinelander.

The YMCA's Marilyn Duschl says the idea is to provide the public with the same types of foods and goods over the winter they get during the warmer months...

"....we started it last year and it's in conjunction with Northwoods LEAN(Linking Education Activity and Nutrition) Coalition. We were able to do it all winter long last year..."

She describes some of the goods available last Saturday at the first market...

".....carrots and turnips and beets, apples. We also had a person come in with micro-greens which are an interesting item to use in cooking. We have a woman who comes in with goat cheese, she also makes homemade breads and bakery goods. Quite a variety...."

Duschl says vendors will vary each week., The market is open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the 'Y' on East Winnebago Street. More information is available at the YMCA of the Northwoods.
