Downtown Appleton Farm Market – Offering consumers the opportunity to “Shop Fresh, Shop Local”

For thousands who enjoy Downtown Appleton’s Farm Market, colder weather signals the end of their weekly ritual, but it shouldn’t! Appleton Downtown Incorporated (ADI) also offers its Winter Farm Market every Saturday morning from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., November through March, inside City Center Plaza.

For some of the market vendors, this is when their products become available; for others it is when they have the time to join us at market. Enhancing the market this winter season are a dozen new vendors who will set up booths in the storefront next to J. Hawkinson Clothiers, on the first floor of City Center Plaza, as an expansion to the market’s full roster of vendors offering fresh and canned goods, as well as handcrafted items for purchase. New winter market offerings include: cupcakes; cupcake pops; soup & dip mixes; grape seed oil; gluten-free bakery; fresh pasta; and succulent container gardens.

“These new choices complement many of the favorite offerings from our outdoor warm weather market, which will continue on as staples at the indoor winter market,” explained Djuanna Hugdahl, Farm Market Director.

Continuing market favorites include: fresh meats, including bison, seafood, lamb and goat; both chicken and duck eggs; a variety of cheeses, along with fresh cheese curds; soy nuts; egg rolls; winter vegetables, such as squash, potatoes, onion and garlic; jams and jellies, pickles, fruit spreads and canned goods; popular bakery items, including whole wheat and artisan breads along with bake mixes; and flavored butter spreads.

Additionally, themed winter market programs will be added to regular market offerings throughout the cold weather season. Upcoming theme days include: Kids Day; Learning at the Market; Health and Wellness; and Sample Saturday. Four great City Center restaurants round out your Saturday morning experience by offering breakfast and lunch specials! Plus while you are Downtown, enjoy unique retail stores, museums and all that Downtown Appleton has to offer!
