Do you like going to farmers’ markets? Our friend Janine MacLachlan definitely does (to the extreme). She visited markets all over Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Missouri, Iowa, Minnesota, and our beloved Wisconsin! She was so thorough, she even squeezed in a visit to our favorite place to shop on Saturdays, the Mineral Point Farmers’ Market. After all of the exploring, tasting, and meeting the people that grow the best food in the Midwest, she compiled her adventures into a book called “Farmers’ Markets of the Heartland“. I’m planning on re-reading it this winter and pretend to market hop with Janine. While the markets are bustling, it’s also a great book to check out new to you markets.
Janine was so generous to offer a free book to giveaway to one lucky Driftless Appetite reader. Just leave a comment on this post with the name your favorite farmers’ market and why. The winner will be announced a week from today. Good luck!
By the way, Janine will have copies of her book available at the Kickapoo Country Fair this Saturday. Go visit with her if you’re going to be in the area.
