We (Sustainable Community Iniative) have organized to help build a bustling Saturday farm market on the city square in Waupaca. We envision a moderated market that includes not only items grown on local farms, but also specialty farm product brought in from outside areas, such as Michigan blueberries and Georgia peaches. It will include, but not be limited to, locally grown produce, meats, honey, maple syrup, home made pickles, salsa, fiber and more. We envision a festival atmosphere with occasional live music and chef demonstrations.
The goals of the farm market are:
- To provide plentiful access to fresh, locally raised, nutritious food.
- To provide a lucrative market space for local farmers.
- To provide an additional draw to the Waupaca downtown, boosting local businesses.
