The elves at the market have been busy making all sorts of wonderful Christmas items, by hand in their homes and farms. You will find fragrant handmade soaps and candles, home made fudge, bakery items, cheeses, oils and vinegars, canned items from the Amish elves and honey for your sweet, and too much more to mention.

If you have stockings to fill just see Elf Dawn for her candy delights! Every flavor and size for all those good little girls and boys.

I am sure you can find it at the Market, and be sure to ask the vendors if you don't see something, they just might have it in their knapsack.

Christmas is coming the Goose is getting fat!

Please do put a penny in the old man's hat
If you haven't got a penny, a ha'penny will do
If you haven't got a ha'penny, then God bless you!

This Christmas carol puts a smile on my face every year, and I hope you are smiling too. All of the geese are spoken for this Christmas, but you still can put a fresh, pasture raised turkey on the table. Turkeys are still available from Behnke Poultry and you can visit their web site at or call them at (563) 285-7844

A good deal for Christmas just got better! 

For each $25 in Freight House Farmers Market Gift Certificates you buy you will also receive your choice of a T-Shirt or Cookbook for FREE!

Be sure to buy plenty as they make great gifts.  Remember that the certificates support local farmers and vendors and 100% of the money stays local!  Great food, wonderful gifts and local vendors all will add to you Christmas this year.  Stop by the Market and pick some up on any Tuesday or Saturday during December. They are good all year round at all of the vendors so pick some up for yourself and enjoy the market all year.
