Farmers Market continues to expand

Have you dropped by the Baileys Harbor Farmers Market lately? The market had been held on the green space next to Lakeshore Adventures. However, the market has moved recently to the lawn area of the Baileys Harbor Town Hall. This is due to the fact that the market has greatly expanded from when it started last year.

We stopped by last Sunday and found a wide variety of vendors. Mike Meulemans, who owns Design Door County, organizes the market for Baileys Harbor. His business, which includes beautiful flowers and plants, is represented at one of the booths.

We talked to Rick Grant who has a stand - "Pherd the Potter," an Appleport ceramics business - at the market. Grant said that the new site at the Town Hall was very nice. He said the town has been very cooperative and that the merchants are allowed to go inside the Town Hall in case of inclement weather.

Other regular merchants at the market included Waterworks Garden Supply, Renard's Cheese, Door County Kraut company (which has some great baked goods - not with kraut), Cheesecake, etc., Lani's Herbs and Oils, even Ornery Hill Syrup and Honey from Green Bay, just to name a few. There are also a number of stands that sell local produce.

The market is open from 9 a.m. to noon every Sunday. We recommend you stop on down and take a look at the new market area.

Ridges news

The Ridges will be busy once again with programs in Baileys Harbor next week. A Boreal Forest Quest is planned at 10:30 a.m. Monday as part of the "No Family Left Inside" program. Families will be able to join the Ridges staff on a quest in search of a special prize while learning about plants, trees and wildlife along the way.

If you would like a little night adventure, The Ridges also has a program that evening called Monday Moon Walk, which begins at 7:30 p.m. Participants for either or both events should meet at the Marshall Cabin at The Ridges. These programs are designed for children of all ages. The cost is $10 per family, and no pre-registration is required.

The next Lake Lesson program will be "Enjoying the Dragonflies and Damselflies of Door County" presented by Bob DuBois, a research scientist and environmental educator with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources. DuBois' program will focus on the many fascinating aspects of dragonflies and damselflies including their biology, ecology and behavior. He'll share identification tips for our more common species as well as information on how to become involved in a statewide dragonfly and damselfly survey. The Lake Lessons programs begin at 7 p.m. Thursday and are held at the Baileys Harbor Town Hall. They are free and open to the public.

Photo show

Two local photographers, Arlene and Steve Stanger, will be part of the third annual Photography Show at Picket Fence Studios in Egg Harbor this weekend. The show will feature six local photographers and will be held from 3 to 7 p.m. today and from 1 to 3 p.m. Sunday at 4563 County E in Egg Harbor. Wine and hors d'oeuvres will be served.

Good music

The Concert in the Park series will continue Friday with the duo Mark and Seth Raddatz. The group plays country folk and bluegrass music. The concerts take place from 5 to 7 p.m. each Friday on the Town Hall lawn across from the marina, sponsored by the Baileys Harbor Community Association.

Milestones
