APPLETON - Everyday Saturday the Fox Valley is buzzin' with one of the area's largest farm markets.
People packed College Avenue for the annual Downtown Appleton Farm Market. More than 100 vendors are on-hand selling fish, grass fed beef, locally grown produce, baked goods and more.
Although the calendar read July 27, many market goers were bundled up, wearing jackets and pants.
Organizers say no matter the weather, rain or shine the market will be open. They say this is one of the best in the area.
"Well, I think we have a nice variety of vendors. I think that helps for the customers to know that they can get a little bit of everything down at the market. From flowers, to cheese, to meat, to a deep-fried Twinkie if you want one," Farm Market Director, Djuanna Hugdahl said.
The market is open now until October.
