End of Season


Hello MP Market Goers!

Though the market has ended and the weather has gotten much cooler; Mineral Point still has plenty of happenings! Here are just a couple that we want to tell you about...the Driftless Film Festival is coming once again to Mineral Point and opens tonight! In addition, the Southwest Wisconsin Book Festival is also coming to Mineral Point in late November. It is going to be a busy holiday season, but don’t miss out on the opportunities that Mineral Point offers.

Yes your Saturday mornings are free once again, but what can one say about the Mineral Point Market and its end for the season? “It’s over, already?”, "Where am I going to get my fix of farm produce?", "Oh no, I forgot to get my Christmas gifts at the market!" We the vendors have had a wonderful season sharing our love for homegrown/homemade products that entice not only your appetite but your eyes as well. Thank you so much for supporting the market, we all appreciate you so very much.

In case you didn’t know, many of the vendors from the market continue to sell their products throughout the winter. Many of the art vendors have wonderful items for Christmas and birthday presents. In addition, the delicious food you seek out at market is available year-round from many of the vendors. Vendors like: Marr’s, Gough’s, Bures’, and Shooting Star all have outlets to sell at throughout the winter as does Lacey's Lathers and a few others. There is also Green Square, where you can order products online for pickup on Wednesday. So don’t let the end of market get you down. There is still plenty of beauty and deliciousness available. Be sure to read below for more details about vendors and their product availability.



Have a wonderful holiday season!  We look forward to seeing you next May at Water Tower Park, Business Hwy 151 at Madison Street, Mineral Point! 8:30 to 11:00 a.m.
