Winter Farmers Market Organizer Promotes Local Growing

Many families are itching to get their seeds in the ground and get their gardens started.

If you think growing starts with the warmer weather approaching, guess again.

Tony Schultz, the Wausau Winter Farmer's Market organizer, said he and his wife started the market because the Wausau area is "craving something like this" to provide fresh produce to the community year-round.

Schultz also has a stand that offers whole wheat ground flour, rolled oats, maple syrup, turnips, sunflower oil, free range organic eggs, pasture pork and more.

Other vendors offer more than 12 different kinds of potatoes, fresh honey, sauerkraut, fresh bottled milk and more.

Schultz said the market will be open for two more weekends, April 5 and 12, at the Marathon County UW-Extension on 212 River Drive, Wausau, Wi., 54473.
