Shoplifting crackdown pays off
Meet Doug and Carol Zimmerman from Pensaukee Valley Certified Organic Farm.
After many steps to become “certified organic”, they are one of the few that continue to hold that status. “Everything you do, the equipment you use, and maps of what is planted, needs to be documented and reported. Right down to the seeds you use.” said Carol, after a recent inspection at the farm.
Although they have a full garden variety, right now the tomatoes are ripe and plentiful. They have several varieties of tomatoes that are from all over the world. Heirloom varieties are some of the favorites of top chefs in the area. There are standing orders for certain, beautiful and taste specific varieties.
Did you ever eat a red, grocery store tomato in the middle of our winter? Blah! Zimmerman’s tomatoes burst with flavor. Sweet and tart, pretty and ugly, big and small, and all the colors under the rainbow – your favorite tomato is there waiting to be discovered.
Pensaukee Valley Certified Organic Farm also has a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program where you can purchase a share over the garden season. Find them at our Market on Military on Thursday’s from 3-7 in the Green Bay Plaza lot.
You really have to see and taste these beautiful tomatoes.

Lee’s Garden tent at the Market on Military is bursting with good stuff!
Generations of experienced growers in this family yield beautiful produce and a friendly staff of sellers. When we stopped by the booth this day, the grand daughter was arranging beautiful bouquets of flowers and piling the tables with garden fresh veggies!
Stop by their booth to say hi and try some of the HOT peppers. I got a lesson on how to eat them. Now I just need to get up the courage to do so.
If you haven’t checked out Judy’s jewelry, you should! Just in time for Packer season, she has green and gold pride jewelry.
Judy can be found at the Market on Military most Thursdays from 3-7. She and her husband have been literally blown over with jewelry!
This sweet little girl takes her mom to the Market on Military each week with the hopes of creating!
With mom’s help to finish up the creation, our market goers got to see a very lovely rendering of “farmers market”.
You are welcome back anytime!
Everyone is welcome to CREATE!

A new twist for me – roasted corn OFF the cob and in a bowl. I had to try it.
A little liquid butter, salt, pepper, and parmesan cheese, WOW! This was all I wanted in corn-on-the-cob without it getting all over my face and and stuck in my teeth. The perfect way to eat it in public, for me, that is. Kao’s Roasted Corn has both!
A true family business, Kao’s Roasted Corn has three generations of the family working over a HOT roaster. Grandpa may be the sampler, while the others serve up a sweet dish, or cob, to Market on Military customers.
One of Market on Military’s first vendors to sign up was Ia Lee. She consistently shows up with beautiful fresh produce and gorgeous flowers. Ie Lee works alongside her two young daughters. They have been working together for five years now, making everything look so inviting at the booth. Be sure to visit them next time you are at the Market on Military, Thursday’s from 3-7.
