Muskego Green Market Entering Its Second Year
Jun 02, 2014 04:22PM
A farmers’ market serving the Muskego community returns this year, operating from 3 to 7 p.m., Thursdays, May 29 through October 2. The market, comprising produce from farmers, home gardeners, artisan food makers, artists and crafters, will be held in the Muskego Public Library parking lot.
Muskego resident and market co-founder Shannon Barbian stresses that purchasing goods from farmers’ markets benefits not only the individual, but the whole community. “People will not only know where their food comes from, but will get to talk to the people that actually grew the vegetables, raised the animals for meat, cared for the chickens that gave them eggs and created the artwork or craft that is exhibited,” explains Barbian.
