Farmers market to crop up soon
Annual tradition will continue, despite harsh winter

By David Richards

As cold as the winter was and as wet as the spring still is, the Byron farmer's market is scheduled to return this summer, probably around late June.

Mayor Ann Diercks, who started the tradition about four years ago, said the vendors will be back at the parking lot of 3Ds along the Frontage Road.

"I think it's great because people can buy food that's grown just a few miles away," Diercks said.

"They know who grew it and how, and that's a positive."

While it's still too wet to plant some things, Diercks said the perennials, including strawberries, rhubarb and asparagus, should be ready in four to six weeks.

Garlic is also an exception since it was planted last fall.

"On average, it starts at the end of June, and we go until we run out of produce or it gets too cold," Diercks said.

The market isn't just about fruits and vegetables, either.

One vendor offers handiwork, pickles and jams.
