Bill and Karen Miller from Twin Creeks Nursery and Greenhouse are bringing fresh wreaths and evergreen accents to the Dane County Farmers’ Market. The products are hand-crafted by Bill and Karen using greens that they grew! –Photo by Zachary Alphonse Marra.

Come Saturday you may be thinking, ‘Please, No More Turkey and Stuffing, Bring on the Veggies!!’ Don’t want to see another slice of pie or candied yam? Have nightmares of 20-lb dressed turkeys chasing you around the table? Can’t think of yet another ‘creative’ way to reinvent those Thanksgiving leftovers? Problem solved: visit the Dane County Farmers’ Market this Saturday where loads and pallets filled to the brim with fresh veggies and fresh-inspired ingredients await you. Stretch those legs, get those house guests out the door and come on down to the farmers’ market.

Side note: HAPPY THANKSGIVING from all of us at the DCFM!!! Enjoy those holiday pies and perfectly roasted turkeys. Enjoy all friends and family that surround you at the table and give thanks (even if you are sitting next to your crazy Uncle Bob).

See you Saturday!
