Spring Plant Sale
May 24 & 25, 2019 | 9am-5pm
formerly Garden Art Sale
SALE UPDATE!!! After a 16 year run we have rebranded the Garden Art Sale into something a bit simpler that we are calling Spring Plant Sale and local food fair. Instead of FOUR days we are doing TWO. Our focus continues to be on locally grown plants and in addition, locally produced food products. You’ll find the same great variety of locally grown, organic vegetables, heirlooms, herbs and annuals by our new found farmers at Sweet Top Farm and also a variety of vendors with sustainably sourced meats, eggs and produce, oney, syrup, confections and all-natural dog treats!
The Common Room will feature a very special “Explore Wisconsin” art exhibit crafted by students from Frederic Elementary School.
We thank Dragonfly Gardens and Foxtail Farm for their long-time commitment to this sale. And, we thank the dozens of artists that have displayed here in the past. All good things must come to an end and we hope that this rebranded sale will continue a Memorial Weekend tradition for all of our customers!

This summer plan to take a Wren Ride! This is a group bike ride on the Gandy Dancer State Trail. Meet at the trailhead behind the Cafe on 260th Ave. We’ll bike 30 mimnutes one way, turn around and return to trailhead. Group rides are a great way to socialize and exercise safely on a non-motorized trail. State trail passes are required and available at the cafe. $5 daily or $25 annual.
