It almost seems that we are on a weather roller coaster with the current changes in our weather lately. Little actual summer weather and early fall weather are alternating within a short period of days. It is difficult to predict which type of weather to expect when planning our activities. We could use some rain to refresh our lawns and food crops, but please don't come on a weekend.
The South Shore Farmers Market is wonderful place to be on a Saturday morning from 8 an to 12 noon. The farmers are having a great amount of variety at the market. Water melons, cantalopes, squash, onions, tomatoes, potatoes, brussel sprouts, beans, peas, dill, small potaoes, pickles and cucumbers, purple carrots and regular carrots, cauliflower, brocolli, and other such things are there to purchase at the market. Fresh mushrooms, crepes, egg rolls, specialty teas, coffee and bakery are available. Fresh flowers and other plants are there. Honey and honey candy, maple syrup, homemade candy are sold there.
There are over 40 vendors to serve you. An educational program at 9:15 am and a musical program at 10:15 am are there to be enjoyed. This is the best farmers market in Milwaukee. Y'all come and join us at the South Shore Farmers Market, located at South Shore Park, 2900 S. Shore Drive in Bay View. See you there!
