During a Wisconsin summer, there’s no need to use the grocery store’s produce section for food that’s been trucked in from who knows where. Fresh picked goods grown by our neighbors are available throughout the region.
The Fox Valley is blessed with an abundance of farm markets with produce shopping just a short drive away on six of seven days of the week. Sorry, Monday vegetable buyers.
