Hazel Street Market Coming Soon!- Adams County



Hello to all of you interested in improving community wellness,

UW-Extension and Adams County Public Health are in the process of setting up a farm market called "The Hazel Street Market" on the corner of Hazel Street and Highway 13 or Main Street.  The market will be held on Wednesday afternoons from 2-6.  The city has blocked off the street so that we can use it for a market.  Planned start date is July 16, 2014.  If you are interested in being a vendor under the pickle bill or selling farm produce or even crafts, please contact the extension office at 608-339-4237 so we can reserve a spot for you to set up.  If you know of someone who would be interested in vending, give them information to contact us!!

There will be no fees charged this year for vending and in all future years, we will attempt to keep fees nominal.  The only request is that people commit to coming on a weekly basis (you would commit at the first market to come to the next or call me so we can let people know you are going to be there) so we can advertise on the extension, city, chamber, and community websites.  If you only have produce until September, that is fine.  Or, if you only will have produce in September and October, that is fine too.  We are flexible and excited to make this happen.  We Parking is available on the street near the market area and people can unload close to the set up point.  UW-Extension will have a registration stand at the market with information about buying and using produce.

Lori from WIC can help you become WIC (Women, Infants, and Children) certified to accept farm market checks.  WIC clients get a $17.00 farm market check to use in summer/fall for fresh grown produce.  There is no charge for this, only an hour of your time for the training.  Contact Lori at Hadac@juneau.wi.us.gov  It does take two weeks for certification to take place so contact her if you want to take WIC checks.  At this time, we cannot accept SNAP or Quest cards, but we look forward to doing this in the future.

Thank you for all your help in promoting this market.  Get the word out to everyone and let's make Wednesday afternoons in Adams the fun place to be!

Theresa Wimann, WNEP Coordinator, Adams UW- Extension
Leah Fuehrer, Adams County Family Living Educator
Sarah Grosshuesch, Adams County Public Health Officer
