All proceeds from the sales of these bags are donated to the Not For Sale organization, which works to end human trafficking and modern-day slavery. Mission Abolition believes in raising awareness of the needs of people involved in human trafficking and modern-day slavery with a personal touch sewn into each bag. Also, if you have any fabric scraps we would be happy for the donation.

P & M Gardens
P & M Gardens, LLC will be at this week's market. We will have Peonies that are blooming, Hosta and Daylilies.

Rockwell Ridge Bakery
I am thrilled to be vending at the Mineral Point Farmer’s Market. I will be selling homemade baked goods including items like brownies, crumb cake and scones, prepared salads and sides, jams, fruit sauces and fresh apple cider in the fall. All of the products are based on things I love and items grown on our farm, Rockwell Ridge. We are located just a couple miles outside of Dodgeville and have fruit trees, berries and vegetables that are all grown without pesticides or herbicides. I make everything I sell with joy and passion and look forward to sharing it with you.

Shooting Star Farm
Looks like Saturday will be a very pleasant day after this intensely hot week. This week one of our new items will be beets! We seeded beets into flats in the greenhouse, transplanted them outdoors on April 8th , covered them, and hoped for the best. Our experiment worked pretty well and now we have the earliest beets ever. They are medium-sized and tasty. Other items this week will include napa cabbage, green onions, bok choy, bibb and leaf lettuces, salad mix, baby arugula, salad turnips, nice red radishes (possibly a few French breakfast, too), Swiss chard, kale, and rhubarb. Not bad for early June. Hope to see you Saturday! Rink, Jenny, and Charlie.

Supreme Seafood
Molly has an assortment of seafood shrimp, cod, crab legs, lobster, scallops to alligator, frog legs, grouper and so much more most everything is coming directly from the boats in Alaska, Cananda. In the beginning of June I will be having an assortment of peppers, cherry tomatoes, beef steak tomatoes and english cucumbers all grown locally in Potosi.

Other vendors we know to be coming include:
Natalie Hanke will be bringing salsa.
Mary Jean James will be back this week.
Papa Bob will be here this week.
