If you follow the Badger Foodie’s Facebook Page, you know that we love shopping at local Farmer’s Markets. The Tomah Farmer’s Market is our favorite, likely due to its location; however, we attend a variety of Farmer’s Markets around the region. When we are on our annual Door County vacation we always check out the Sturgeon Bay Farm and Craft Market, which we did today.
The 2018 Sturgeon Bay Farm and Craft Market happens every Saturday, rain or shine, from June 2nd to October 27th. The market’s hours are 8:30am – 12pm, and it is held in the Market Square Parking Lot at the corner of 4th Avenue and Michigan Street. There are over 65 vendors who offer a great variety of locally grown produce to choose from, beautiful flowers, and delicious foods. This year we noticed it spilled over onto one of the side streets which was blocked off for the Market.
Besides the normal produce you would expect at a Farmer’s Market at the end of July, it wouldn’t be a Door County Farmer’s Market without cherries! I was surprised to see sweet cherries still available at the Sturgeon Bay Farm and Craft Market because in year’s past we have only found sweet cherries at a couple of farm stands when we are up in Door County around this time.
If buying items to take home isn’t your style, a few vendors at the Sturgeon Bay Farmer’s Market have you covered. Like the above stand that was making fresh made to order crepes. There were also vendors grilling up fresh meat-based items, making kettle corn, and fresh egg rolls (and other deep fried goodies).
This Sturgeon Bay Farmer’s Market is called the Farm and Craft Market for a reason. About half of the vendors are displaying their artistic items. The above picture is of Dan Cihlar Masonry, which boosts “Door County’s Largest Selection of Concrete Lawn Ornaments. There were other vendors selling everything from metal work, fine jewelry, knitted items, and custom wood carvings and toys.
If you are ever in Sturgeon Bay when the Sturgeon Bay Farm and Craft Market is happening, I encourage you to check it out!
