The parking lot at the Antigo Country Store will again be dotted with white tents, inviting visitors to check out the first farm market of the season on Saturday.

The market is now in its fifth year and will run from 8 a.m. until noon or until vendors are out of products.

According to coordinator Renate Bromberg, spring came early and the harvest of frost-hardy crops should be well under way. Samples of lettuce, radishes and green onions will most likely be available in addition to other products such as maple syrup, fresh and smoked fish as well as some craft items.

The first markets of the season also offer a large variety of bedding plants, which will be safe to be set outdoors during the first week of June. The 4-H ambassadors will serve free, homemade ice cream.

For people interested in becoming a seller, the vendor information and application package can be downloaded from the website Copies are also available at the UW Extension office at the Langlade Resource Center at 837 Clermont St., Antigo, and at the market manager’s table.
