Autumnal Equinox

Beautiful melons, sunflowers and much more from Yang Family Produce


Autumnal Equinox

How fitting that on the autumnal equinox, the day the sun moves fully into the southern hemisphere, a markedly cool breeze fills the air. The wind pushing off those early honey locust leaves and calling us into sweater weather, mulled cider and roasted squash.

We know well the peaks and troughs of temperature these fall days can bring here in Wisconsin and we take it all in stride.

In the cool mornings we hearty up with a hot cup of Bryant Family Farms coffee (pictured) as we tend a skillet with eggs and pastured pork bacon from ParKelm Farm (pictured).

As the day heats up we make a nice sandwich atop Stella's Bakery multigrain (pictured) and enjoy a nice ripe honeycrisp apple to cap things off.

Reaching the quitting hour, a cup of cider is to be enjoyed before donning the dinner apron and whipping up some delicious steamed Brussels sprouts with lemon dill butter with sprouts from Black Earth Valley and fresh dill from Blue Moon Community Farm (both pictured).

There's a lot to take in over the coming fall, from familiar favorites to new flavors. We don't like to think too early of what comes at the close of the season, but for now we'll enjoy all market days we can get.

See you at market!

Market on the Move in 2023

We've got some big news to share regarding the 2023 market season. Many of you have already seen the news that UW Health is planning on building a new clinic in part of the market occupied lots starting next year.

With construction slated to begin next spring, we're happy to announce we'll be relocating to the MG&E Innovation Center inside University Research Park in 2023. Located about 1.5 miles south of our current location, the new market site will offer room for our vendors, along with ample parking space for our shoppers, as well as a shaded picnic area for everyone to relax and enjoy their market goods while listening to music and taking in those great market mornings.

We'll have more details to come later in the summer, but rest assured that the WCM will remain a great fixture of the west side community for years to come. For the remainder of 2022, you can find us each and every week at 750 University Row into early November.
