Onalaska, WI (WXOW)-- As drought conditions continue to hit farms across the country, farmers' markets are also feeling the effects. But that's not the case for all of them, at least in our area.
The Onalaska farmers market is held every Sunday and workers there say they're still meeting shopper demands.
One of the market's farmers says he's had a smaller yield of his typical fruits, vegetables and corn this year, but he's still producing a surplus, capable of meeting market demands and more. Although, he adds the tough temperatures have scared away some shoppers.
"Some market days are slow because it's hot and people don't want to come out and buy," said Brent Severeid, a farmer. "That's been more of a concern than anything else. People just don't come out."
The Onalaska farmers market is open 8 AM to 1 PM in the afternoon every Sunday through October.
In La Crosse County, there are farmers markets running Wednesday through Sunday.
