A stalk of corn waiting for harvest started as a seed; our community's the same. We're planting the seed of brighter tomorrows today. The Shawano Farmers Market nurtures our community’s health, and social and economic growth by providing a vibrant marketplace for the local food producers. The Shawano Farmers Market also gives local vendors and farmers a place to come together and celebrate good, hard, honest work - the work done by the hands of our neighbors. Come out and help us grow.
You're part of the local economy, so you understand how important it is to keep this city vibrant and moving forward. We're doing that, too!
