Peruse Savory Accents booth for a whole host of pepper products – harissa paste, pepper spice mixes, and pepper jellies. All are versatile ingredients that add a little spice during the grey days of winter. Also look for an array of fresh and dried herbs from the Plahnt Farm and Hickory Hill Farm.

Find beautiful handmade wooden cutting boards made by Felix Thalhammer of Capri Cheese. Pair these beauties with an array of cheeses from market for the cheese-lover in your life.


A glug of oil is the beginning of so many recipes – from sautes to salad dressings. Give the gift of locally raised and pressed sunflower oil from Cherokee Bison Farms and Driftless Organics. From the field to your salad!


Indulge someone special in your life with some herb infused sea salts from Renaissance Farm – these sea salts add flavor – namely rosemary, sweet basil, and thyme -  straight from the farm. Perfect for seasoning roasted veggies and meats, salad dressings, soups, and stir-fries.


You don’t have to be Julia Child in the kitchen to use the bakery mixes from Hickory Hill Farm! These mixes feature grains grown right in Wisconsin - from corn meal to whole wheat flour.

As always, the market features an array of honeys from The Bee Charmer, Marsdens Pure Honey, and River Forks Honey perfect for the bee-lover or tea-drinker in your life!
