Carey's Green House
My name is Delbert Carey and I was born and raised in Mineral Point.  I have many annuals that can be used in both container gardens and traditional growing spaces. Because of my time at Pendarvis, English garden favorites such as lilacs, hollyhocks, and hostas are also favorites of mine. I taught pre-school for eight years and learned just how much fun kids can have growing sunflowers and pumpkins. Finally I’ve always had a weakness for climbing vines such as morning glories and moon flowers.
My parents have enjoyed joining in on this little project and they helped me choose the name Carey’s Green House which is an inside joke. After forty-six years of living in the same white house, last summer my parents decided to paint the whole thing Green, and thus the bulk of my plants come from Carey’s green house. All of the plants we offer for sale are either annuals grown naturally from seeds or perennials that are either grown from seeds or grown from cuttings of plants that have grown in my parents gardens for the last 46 years.
I hope to see you all at the market!

Week 8 - June 23rd


Hello MP Market Goers!
I can not believe that we are on week 8 of the market already this year; at the Patch we are already thinking of summer raspberries! I guess that is better than the school backpacks I saw in Staples the other day all ready for school shopping, really? Honestly though this season is going so quickly and things are a bit ahead of schedule. Shooting Star Farm will have broccoli this week and we've been digging potatoes for a couple of weeks now. It seems like everything is running 2-3 weeks ahead of schedule. What a year it has been!
That being said there is always great stuff to grab at market. The fruit and veggies are fantastic. But there are also great gifts for birthdays, anniversaries, even for your 4th of July party hostess. Just the other week I picked up a beautiful necklace from DDP Beads! Everything is wonderfully made by the vendors themselves, so be sure to check out their tables.
So come on out and enjoy the Mineral Point Market and all its bounty!
We look forward to seeing you this Saturday morning at Water Tower Park, Business Hwy 151 at Madison Street, Mineral Point! 8:30 to 11:00 a.m.

Week 7 - June 16th



Hello MP Market Goers!

Congratulations Terry Scheid, winner of last week's market basket drawing!

Another gorgeous week has gone by and the corn grew yet another 4" I think. It will probably be hip high by the 4th of July, because it is already knee high!

This weekend Shake Rag Alley hosts the Town and Country Garden Tour. Rink and Jenny's Shooting Star Farm will be on the tour! Be sure to check it out, make notes and then come to market next week with your list of plants that you would like in your garden.


Market this week promises to be filled with deliciousness! Lots of new produce is coming out of our fields to grace our tables this Saturday. There will be beets, sugar snap peas, garlic scapes, potatoes, even some cucumbers (might want to get to market early this week). Oh and did I mention the new bacon flavors that Marr's Valley View Farm's has? Yummy!


Some come on out and enjoy the Mineral Point Market and all its bounty!


We look forward to seeing you this Saturday morning at Water Tower Park, Business Hwy 151 at Madison Street, Mineral Point! 8:30 to 11:00 a.m.

We’ll also have a limited supply of sugar snap peas. Some critter got in and munched some of our early pea plants, so we’ll have a small-ish amount for Saturday. Later plantings look better. We’ll even have a few (and I mean few) cucumbers for the early birds. Other items include: Swiss chard, collard greens, kale, radishes, salad turnips, garlic scapes (use like garlic), scallions (green onions), napa cabbage, cilantro, basil, lots of lettuce varieties (bibb, leaf, baby romaine), salad mix, and baby arugula.

Week 6 - June 9th


Hello MP Market Goers!

What a beautiful week we have had outside!  Our corn probably grew 4" this week!  It is starting to get dry out now though so we have been turning the irrigation on every morning to water different fields at the Patch.  This Saturday promises to be a gorgeous day out so be sure to stop by market to get everything you need for grilling out, because it is going to be too hot for the kitchen.  Also this week, we will once again have music and new this week...chair massages!  Be sure to read our vendors' full product offering details on the website, Farmer's Daughter's Kitchen is running a sale for Father's Day pre-orders!


In town this weekend is the United Church of Christ Rummage Sale, Saturday 8-2pm and Mon-Fri 10-4pm!  Alley Stage also has their season opener this weekend!


Mineral Point is such a great town, so much to do so much to see!


Some come on out and enjoy the Mineral Point Market and all its bounty!


We look forward to seeing you this Saturday morning at Water Tower Park, Business Hwy 151 at Madison Street, Mineral Point! 8:30 to 11:00 a.m.

Shooting Star Farm
Things are looking good on the farm for this time of year. The first week in June can be a challenge as there always seems to be a perfect combination of heat and rain, which makes the weeds go crazy. Luckily nothing is out of control. Plus we just got two new summer helpers on board. Hurray for that!  Our veggie line up for this week will be just about the same as last week, with tentative addition of beets and sugar snap peas (we hope). Look for lettuce (green and red bibb, green and red leaf, and a variety of miniature heads), endive, cilantro, salad mix, baby arugula, kale, Swiss chard, scallions, green garlic (young garlic plants), red radishes, salad turnips, and garlic scapes (delicious, garlicky seed stalks from garlic plants). Spinach is iffy. We’re hoping the patch re-grows in time for Friday’s harvest. Looks like Saturday will be a beautiful day for the market! See you then. Rink, Jenny, and Charlie

Turtle Hill Wilds
Turtle Hill Wilds will be at market this week. We will have honey, raw and creamed, and a variety of honey-sweetened jams.  Dried burgundy wine cap mushrooms too, with perhaps some fresh, depending on the weather. We are open at Turtle Hill for visitors by appointment.  Consider coming by for a walk in the forest to learn more about wild plants and a visit to our bee yard.  Into woodworking?  Check out our barn-dried sustainably harvested wood.  If you would like to learn more about Turtle Hill please introduce yourself to Cindy and Charles at the market, or give us a call at 608-523-4213.
