Monona Farmers' Market
Sunday, August 19, 2018
If you want to spice things up, the Monona Farmers Market is the place to be!
The Cajun Spice Band is returning to share their traditional Cajun music from Southwest Louisiana. This fun and lively four-piece band plays guitar, accordion, fiddle and percussion.
To add spice to your cooking, check out the Salsa Man for a variety of fresh, preservative-free, locally made salsas. The level of spiciness ranges from medium to hot, extra hot and beyond! Sample some tomato salsas, fruit combinations or black bean and corn. Live dangerously and give Dragon’s Breath salsa a try. The salsas are great when served with tortilla crisps or atop steak, chicken, pork, fish, eggs or mixed in a Bloody Mary. Consult the Salsa Man for cooking ideas.
Throughout the season you can also find an assortment of spices, condiments and jams and jellies to compliment your menu at vendors Spark Spices, Chef K. Clark’s and Land of O’s.
Keep your finger on the pulse of what is going on in Monona and Dane County. Monona Mayor Mary O’ Connor and Dane County Board member Tanya Buckingham will be at the market from 9:00 to 11:00. If you haven’t met them, stop by their table to introduce yourself. They look forward to meeting new people, listening to concerns, ideas and discussing issues. Take a cup of coffee from Café’ Social Express, fresh squeezed lemonade from Chippy’s or some bubble tea from Egg Rolls Center to sip on while you chat.
The summer yard and gardening season is shifting and preparing for fall is upon us. The time is right for planting things for a fall harvest like kale, lettuce, and spinach. It’s also a good time for saving seeds, dividing perennials and aerating lawns. If you have yard and gardening questions, the Master Gardeners are just the people to talk to. They will be at the market this Sunday and the first and third Sundays through September.
EBT is accepted. The Double Dollars Program is available.
The market, located at Ahuska Park, 400 East Broadway, is open every Sunday from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm through October 28.
