Ontario Farmers Market organizer
The Ontario Farmers Market opened for the season May 28.
Once again, we will bring you the best we have to offer. You will find us on the ball field side of Pleasant Street, next to Palen Park, from 3–7 p.m. every Thursday through Oct. 8.
Due to the current health risk, we will follow Wisconsin state guidelines for farmers markets.
To help you, we will be posting our vendor’s weekly offerings on our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/MarketInOntario/ and here in the County Line as often as we can. We do encourage you to order ahead directly from our vendors. You will then be able to drive by, pay for and receive your orders.
Walk-ups will also be permitted, but please note that we will observe 6-foot physical distancing, and we support the use of wearing masks so that we may protect one another at this time. Food sampling is not allowed, nor is consuming food or gatherings of any kind.
We are looking forward to serving our community and seeing all of you. You may order in advance from Brook Edwards of Babbling Brook Farm at (608) 639-0639, Lauren West of Echo Valley Farm Bakery at (608) 337-4578, and Crystal Winchell of Sweet Treat Boutique at (608) 780-4574. There will be Amish vendors as well, and we will post what they will offer as we know it.
New vendors are also welcome. Contact Dena at (608) 337-4578 for details.
Best wishes to all of you from your farmers market team. Stay healthy!
