WISCONSIN RAPIDS — It is officially spring, and the 2018 farmers market season is right around the corner. With the many changes to the downtown area you may be wondering about your favorite farmers market.

Thanks to the generosity of the YMCA and Boys and Girls Club, the market will continue to function in last year’s location for the 2018 season. The market is located at 555 W. Grand Avenue outside the VA clinic.
