GREEN BAY (NBC 26) – The Saturday Green Bay Farmers Market officially kicked off this weekend for its 104th season.
More than 75 local vendors lined up in the streets, away from each other.
People could buy fresh produce, baked goods, meat, cheese, flowers, plants and handicrafts.
On Cheryl’s business, she said they had a successful first Saturday.
She and her partner Kathy own “The Farm Near The Falls” in Oconto Falls and this weekend they brought 32 different kinds of herbs to sell at the market.
“There are 18 in an apartment and each locker had three all the way to the top, as far as it can go and we come in pretty much empty. What we have here is all, ”Cheryl said.
They said their truck was loaded from top to bottom that at the end of the market there were only a few left.
She goes on to share that she spoke with several other vendors who also seemed to be having great success.
“Every salesperson I spoke to said they had a great day and it’s a lot of smiles,” Kathy said.
The market has followed the latest CDC guidelines that those who have been fully vaccinated can resume their activities without wearing a mask. Those who were not vaccinated were advised to wear a mask.
According to the City of Green Bay ordinance, it bans dogs and other pets during special events. Smoking is also prohibited in the farmer’s market.
