  • Deep fried oreos offer a unique taste sensation weekly at the Farm Markets and Heid Music Summer Concerts.
  • While you can get eggrolls anytime inside, hot eggrolls eaten outside seem even better.  Available at the Farm Markets and Heid Music Summer Concerts.
  • Be sure to get your squeak on with fresh cheese curds each week at the Farm Market.
  • Discover what it is about gyros that make them the perfect summer lunch or dinner?  Maybe it is the cucumber sauce at Josef’s Gyros Kabob.
