Fleece sorting, holiday container garden ideas at Sunday's Oconomowoc Winter Farmers Market

The Oconomowoc Winter Farmers Market continues on Sunday as it presents its first Ask the Expert Vendor program on Sunday as Georgia Meyer of Silver Creek Alpacas holds an alpaca fleece sorting demonstration. Meyer is currently studying to be a certified fleece sorter, something that less than a dozen people in the United States are certified to do.
Meyer’s demonstration will be held from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. at her booth in the greenhouses.
Following the demonstration, Oconomowoc Landscape Supply & Garden Center staff will demonstrate, “How to Create a Festive Container Garden,” from 11:30 to 12:30 p.m.
The indoor winter farmers market is free and open to the public. The market runs from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. inside the Oconomowoc Landscape Supply and Garden Center (OLSGC) greenhouses, N68 W37850 Highway K.
Terry Van Lare, owner of OLSGC said he’s happy to host the Oconomowoc Winter Farmers’ Market, “The greenhouses are the perfect place for this twice monthly event, when the temperatures drop below zero our greenhouses allow the sunshine in, while keeping the cold out.”
Van Lare further explains, “We have received so many inquiries on whether we be hosting the market again this year. People really want it and obviously by the traffic through our greenhouses, they support it.”
Lisa Geason-Bauer, Greener Oconomowoc Winter Farmers’ Market Director and Co-Chair of the Oconomowoc Winter Farmers’ Market planning committee is very excited about the focus of the programming for the 2012-13 season of the market. Geason-Bauer explains, “The Oconomowoc Winter Farmers’ Market will continue to offer a free wholesome gathering place for people of all ages and families during the winter months. This years educational programs will be focused around the topic of sustainable living and lifestyles.”
The public and community are invited to purchase locally grown and produced products ranging from artisan breads, toffee, eggs, cheese, beef, lamb, dips, sauces, vegetables, crackers, granola, fudge sauce, and more. Additions to the 2012-13-winter farmer market include more producers and a larger amount of seasonally grown produce such as micro greens, garlic and mushrooms. New products include raw honey, pickled asparagus, belly beans, jams and more.
