D&T Gardens

D&T Gardens Bloom This Year

When the owner of D&T Gardens, David Horkman, is working the fields, Brian is attending the Market on Military to sell the crops. This year Jenny, a long time market employee, is also working in the fields and the crops are producing better than average. It might be her touch or our great weather this summer! (After the late snow melted.)

D&T Gardens attends all three of the Green Bay markets and works closely with the Women Infant Children (WIC) nutrition program which supports healthy eating for young children and their parents. Customers can use vouchers to purchase the locally grown produce. In addition to the produce grown in Howard and Black Creek, Brian also sells peaches from Georgia and blueberries from Michigan.  

Electronic Benefit Transfer or better known as EBT is another method of payment customers can use to buy the produce. “One woman thanked me for accepting EBT payments and said that because she could use EBT, her grandkids can eat good food,” said David Horkman.

EBT is a food subsidy program through the government and the Market on Military also doubles the EBT amount up to $10 per day from a grant program sponsored by HSHS. The program encourages healthy eating and the fresh produce at D&T Gardens is a great fit.

One of my favorite products from D&T Gardens are the big yellow onions, they are super sweet. A quick and easy meal for the summer is to fry a couple pieces of bacon. When they are almost done,  add the onions, sliced zucchini, and lastly add green beans. Eat it alone or with pasta or rice. Yummy and healthy!


Meet Seng Lee

Hard work pays off for Lee’s Garden

Seng Lee has been a produce and flower vendor at the Market on Military since we started three years ago. She usually gets help from her kids to set up, fill out the paperwork, and sell. Her husband joins her too.

Seng Lee was shy about getting her picture taken but her smile shows how much she enjoys her job. The land she harvests is in Denmark.

The produce she sells covers all the seasons, from rhubarb and asparagus to pumpkins and squash. With our strange 2018 spring, Seng Lee is one of the few vendors that has been harvesting enough to sell in June and early July.

A bright new sign and warehouse sale at H.J. Martin and Son

If you have never been to an H. J. Martin and Son warehouse sale – you need to go, and go early! 

The beautiful new sign at H. J. Martin and Son is announcing the popular, yearly warehouse sale!

April 28th from 8 AM to 1 PM

A line starts to form before the opening time with anxious customers waiting to get the best pick of samples, over stock, remnants, one of a kind items, and more. Great prices on everything!

But go prepared to know the sizes of things you need! Will that box of tiles work for the table I want to make? Is that carpet piece big enough for my space?

Here is what their post says:

For all 365 days of each year, H.J. Martin and Son’s passion for flooring, design, installation and – most of all – our customers, is clear. For one of those days in particular, our goal is to share that passion and excitement by giving back to you, the customer, with amazing prices.

Every year we look forward to the H.J. Martin and Son Annual Warehouse Sale, and we’re not alone! Join thousands of your neighbors in visiting the Warehouse Sale for the highest quality products at unmatched prices. You can save up to 90 percent on select materials!

Have FUN doing your creative shopping!

New Owner of Liberty Tax

Welcome to the new owner of Liberty Tax in the Beacon Center. 

You won’t see Lisa Willi or her daughters doing other community things for a while since this is the busy season for taxes. As a new owner of Liberty Tax 609 S Military Avenue, just behind Starbucks, she is knee deep in taxes.  Other than this time of the year, they all participate in numerous community volunteer opportunities, including helping out at our Market on Military.

You will, however, see a familiar face jaming and playing air guitar on the busiest corner in Green Bay, West Mason and Military Avenue. He has been doing this for years and loves it. Lisa lets him and others hop into the store to warm up whenever they need it.

Lisa may look familiar as she worked at Liberty Tax for many years and is a long time Green Bay resident with her husband, two daughters and a son. They, and her dad, all helped her at the grand opening in January of this year.

“I love taxes,” said Lisa. That is a rare statement but true for her. You can contact Lisa at Liberty Tax at 920-405-9801.

Naniot’s Auto Service for sale, Bob’s retiring

Since 1987, Bob Naniot has operated Naniot’s Auto Service on Military Avenue but that is not his first rodeo here.

Bob worked on Military Avenue since he was just 14 years old, selling produce for Harry Wery’s Florida Fruit Market on the corner of Military Avenue and Velp. He worked at 5 different businesses over his career, all on Military Avenue. McDonalds, Zepher Gas Station, Ed Piche’s Amaco, and then he opened his own service station.

After 41 years of service, Bob is retiring and selling his well respected business. I, for one, was fortunate enough to have my check-engine light go off after troubleshooting at several other service stations with no luck.

“Keeping up with today’s technology is a challenge, but I think that keeps this business more stimulating.” said Bob, when I asked him how he adjusted to the computers in vehicles today.  His positive attitude has kept him and his long time employees busy having fun. They know most of the regular customers by name and will be great assets for anyone interested in purchasing this company.

Bob and his wife plan to travel from coast to coast and border to border and spend a lot of time up north. We wish them the best!

In The News

As we start our 4th year of the Business Improvement District, the Green Bay Press Gazette’s Jeff Bollier sat down with us at Starbucks to discuss what we hoped to see this coming year, 2018. Here is a link to that article.

With the announcement of Sears closing, the gap in our business center will force a big change since the long time anchor’s opening in the late 1960’s. The Sears property and the Green Bay Plaza were under separate ownership. New owners purchased both parcels in December.

Erinn Taylor, from WFRV Channel 5, talked with us at the office. Her and the cameraman also went around the district and chatted with Dan at Chili John’s a GB Plaza customer. Here is a link.

We would love to hear ideas from you about what you want to see in this area. The new owners of the Plaza area are open to working with local, and not just corporate businesses. Military Avenue has always been a great district to start a business and let it grow and expand. Some of our great first’s are H.J. Martin and Son’s and Shopko. Both have grown to become large employers in the region and retain their presence on Military Avenue.

You can find an available property Google Map on our website that lists rental and for-sale property. We are home to a diverse and unique mix of retail, office, and restaurants. On Military Avenue, you can shop the best off-price retail stores and find the best all-day breakfast places in town.

Events are one way for us to drive traffic here and discover our area. Currently we host a very accessible summer farmers market and Music on Military event in the fall. What events would you want to attend? We like to work with the neighborhood associations and rely on volunteers to staff our events.

If you would like to share your ideas with us, we would be happy to hear them! You can contact Leah at 920-544-9503 or Director@militaryave.org.
