Some of your favorite Lake Mills Farmers’ Market vendors will gather on Saturday, December 14 for our annual Winter Market. The hallways and Community Room of the Lake Mills City Hall will be bursting with food products, jewelry, Christmas crafts. You’ll be able to stock up on honey and baked goods. You will find a wide variety of items, ranging from hand-turned wooden items to wonderfully scented soaps and candles, and hot food and more will be available.

Do you already miss Flying Cow Pizza? They will have a “bake and take” booth this year – order a few to take home and bake, or order more than a few to take home and freeze – this will tide you over until Flying Cow returns to the Farmers’ Market next May!

The number of participating vendors continues to grow each year!

Enjoy holiday music all day, from live groups to popular recordings.

If you are going to the Tyranena Ladies Club Breakfast with Santa at the Legion that morning, don’t forget to bring the family down the block to City Hall and enjoy the Winter Market!
