August 14 farmers market will feature two special attractions

Aug. 1, 2010

Two vendors at the Stahl-Conrad Homestead, 9724 W. Forest Home Ave., on August 14, will demonstrate doing things the old fashioned way. Both will be in the barn.


Marilyn Jacobson, who raises sheep at Curly Fleece Sheep Farm in Elkhorn, will greet shoppers as she keeps her spinning wheel whirring. Nearby are numerous examples of her handiwork: hats, mittens, booties, sweaters--all handmade from the fleece of her sheep.


At 10:30, Irma Ferrari, proprietor of Sweet Somethings, will take a break from selling her homemade baked goods to give a demonstration of pie making. She has taught numerous baking classes at the Cooking Store in Brookfield and will share her secrets at the Homestead.


Familiar veggie vendors will be there with the best produce of the season: corn, tomatoes, kohlrabi, plus honey and eggs from free-range chickens.


The market is open from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon.
