Wood Orchard Market will feature a few new items this season. Market Manager Janice Wood brought back more than a few new ideas from England when she and her husband Steve toured direct market farms there in February.
Janice says even though the English farmers they met dealt more with livestock than produce, the marketing strategies are transferrable.
When the market opens on April 27, customers will find a map of local producers along with a map featuring market employees’ favorite restaurants, beaches, orchards and other Door County delights. They’ll even debut a new type of jam they tried on the tour.
Market hours will be 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. daily through May, and June – October the market is open until 6 p.m.
