Farmer’s Market ready for new season at Cameron Park in La Crosse



If it’s the first Friday in May, you can find La Crosse’s Cameron Park filled with vendors and shoppers.

Tonight marks the opening of the Farmer’s Market for this season. Departing market manager Maddie Makinster, who’s moving to Milwaukee, says there may be fewer offerings than usual on the first night, but that will change as the growing season continues.

Because of lower turnout last summer for the Saturday markets, the Cameron Park market runs Fridays only this year, from 4 p.m. to dusk, through the end of October.

The market will be managed this year by Caleb Kvale, who is looking forward to seeing some new vendors joining this season and offering a wider variety of products.
