Up Coming Events at the Walnut Valley Farmers Market in Winfield

If you haven't been out to the market in Winfield yet, you are certainly missing out on some good shopping and some great fun.  The farmer's market runs from 7:30 am-11:30 every Saturday morning.  The market will run through the end of September.  Here is a list of the markets up coming events.  What's great about all these events.  They are entirely free!    

August 15 – “Cooking from the Garden” food demo presented by Ken & Madeline Norland of Winfield’s Bluestem Bed & Breakfast who will feature several favorite recipes.  

August 22 – “Go Green, Hoe Down!” Musical entertainment performed by Robin Macy & friends of Belle Plaine’s Bartlett Arboretum. The morning concert will be under the big sycamore tree at WVFM Market location at Island Park entrance.  this event is sponsored by WVFM association and Legacy: A Community Foundation.

August 29 – College Hill’s Belinda Hoskins will present a food demo featuring “Fresh Tomatoes”. 

September 12-Local Beekeeper's are going to do a honey extraction demonstration.

September 19-Come out and watch the gypsy dancers and belly dancers perform traditional dances.  I bet there will even be some lessons!


Be sure to come out for the concert put on by Robyn Macy on August 22nd.  What a special treat!  If you would like to learn more about Robyn here is her website. http://www.bartlettarboretum.com/robin.php I have lived here a little over 2 years now and I'm still discovering treasures such as Robyn Macy and her arboretum.  I find it rather funny that I pass the arboretum on a regular basis and never really knew what I was passing.   I'm really looking forward to the concert on the 22nd.
