Farmers' markets are a long-standing tradition in central Wisconsin. They’re great for so many reasons! Purchasing locally-grown and seasonal foods benefits the local economy, environment, and your personal health in many ways, so enjoy the tastes, the relationships you develop with producers, and the knowledge that you are doing something good for yourself, the community and the earth!
Mornin’ Sunshine Farm
Mornin' Sunshine Farm is a small, family-owned produce farm nestled in the farming community of Rudolph. The farm has been in their family for generations and has seen a lot of changes in the art of farming. But at its heart, the core values have remained the same—family working together to grow fresh, wholesome, quality produce. Their on-farm produce market is open mid-June through October 31st each year. They offer a variety of produce grown on their farm along with some produce from local growers. They also offer delicious home-made jams, honey produced from the bees on their farm, fresh-cut flowers, and various craft items.
Inside their store they offer coffee and fresh bakery items! There is a little patio with tables for you to sit and enjoy your treats on the farm, or you can also take them back home with you.
