Community meal after Winter Farmer's Market
Placeholder Image
MONROE - People will have the opportunity to taste and buy farm products produced locally by sustainable farmers in Green County and surrounding areas from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. Sunday.

The Churches' Center for Land and People - soon to be known as the Food, Faith and Farming Network - is sponsoring a Winter Farmer's Market and supper, hosted by Grace Lutheran Church. The Winter Farmers Market will feature a range of locally-grown products including cheese, root vegetables, maple syrup, honey, preserves, salsa, soap, poultry, a variety of meats and eggs.

The Loaves and Fishes community meal will be served from 4 to 6 p.m. Both the market and supper will be held at Grace Lutheran Church, 1025 15th Ave., Monroe.

The dinner, provided by the Monroe United Methodist Church, includes turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, green beans, vegetable relishes and dessert. Every effort has been made to procure locally-produced ingredients for the meal.

This Winter Farmer's Market and supper promote economic justice by supporting family farmers and rural communities; earth stewardship by buying locally from sustainable farmers; and community and spirituality by connecting farmers with both rural and urban consumers. Ten percent of the market proceeds will go to the Harvest of Hope Fund, which is a farm emergency fund helping Wisconsin farming families in crisis.

The meal is free. Free-will donations will be accepted and will benefit Loaves and Fishes community meal and Churches' Center for Land and People. For more information, contact Marilee Backstrand at 847-812-1762 or Vendors may contact April Yancer at 608-512-2950 or
