Monticello Farmers Market

     Congratulations to Shirley Stadtmueller and Kathy McDonell, our National Farmers Market Week drawing winners. Each winner took home a Monticello Farmers Market shopping bag filled with a nice variety of items including produce, baked goods, soap, eggs and flowers. Jerilyn had a wonderful and delicious demonstration Saturday morning on using herbs. Come by this Saturday and see what is happening.

     If you have the Farmers Market Nutrition Program checks (Senior and WIC) be sure to use them. Please do not wait until October. Right now there is a nice variety of produce; in October the selection is not as diverse. We have several vendors that accept the checks: Joyce Doll, Marv Manternach, Jon Beal, Nicole Moestchen, and Peg Mere. These checks are only redeemable at authorized markets. A listing of authorized markets is available on the Iowa Department of Ag website.

     The Monticello Farmers Market is held rain or shine. The Wednesday market runs from 3 to 5:30 p.m. and the Saturday market is from 8 to 11 a.m. at Willow Shelter, next to Pizza Ranch.

     See you at the market!
