Increased sales at Wisconsin farmers markets

Posted:

People are spending more money at farmers markets throughout Wisconsin, according to the latest Census of Agriculture.

The data shows in 2012 Marathon County farmers saw a six percent increase in direct sales to people compared to in 2007.

Wausau Farmers Market manager Craig Carlson says they're seeing the increase.

He says the market is off to a good start this season.

"There's been good support by the vendors," said Carlson. "There's been quite a variety of vendors with a variety of products, so it's been appealing to many of our regular customers. "

The farmers market in Wausau is open on Saturdays and Wednesdays. For more information about this farmers market, visit their website.
