MINOCQUA - You could stock up on "homegrown" and "homemade" products in Minocqua earlier today.

Minocqua's Farmers Market kicked off at 8 a.m.

Farmers from all over the Northwoods brought their spring goods to the Minocqua Park Complex on Highway 70.

Market President Ann Ertl was happy to see the sun out for the first market of the year.

She says her favorite part of the market is the people that visit, especially the ones that come back year after year.

About 20 vendors come Farmers from eight counties in the Northwoods.

Their products change with the season and what can be grown around the Northwoods.

"Right now it's rhubarb, asparagus, spinach. As it warms up you get lettuce, tomatoes, and cucumbers," said Ertl.

Ann says the freshest items go fast, so it's best if you come earlier in the day.

Minocqua Farmers Market is every Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m through October.
