The local farmers’ market season begins today in La Crosse County.

Jim Steinhoff from the county health dept. says at the peak of the season, there will be nine markets a week around the county, with one of the most popular based in downtown La Crosse.

“Cameron is popular,” he said. “In addition to the food, they have music and other entertainment.”
