Farmer's Market Thrives!
Just as we hoped, our farmer's market has attracted people of all ages, families big and small, people from all over Milwaukee. This past Saturday, we had some new vendors selling strawberries and local honey. These new items were a huge hit. We still had mouthwatering quesadillas and delicious, cool coffee for sale.
The bee man, Charlie, brought out some of our rooftop bees out to his honey stand to give visitors a closer look at what the bees were doing. You could go very close to the bees and notice the differences between the girl and boy bees. It was very educational and fun.
A little girl was very excited to receive her warm, fresh quesadilla this last Saturday.
There was quite a long line to get to where the fresh produce was. The strawberry vendor was selling the sweetest strawberries you'll ever taste. Another farmer was selling her vertical farming system and a variety of vegetables.
