    Pierce’s on Hwy 67 & Cty F, Fontana/Williams Bay WI!!!

  2. WI Weather Buff July 16, 2010 11:12 PM

    The farmers market on Saturday morning in downtown Beloit. They block off the main streets to vehicle traffic right downtown and it becomes one big pedestrian mall farmers’ market all morning long.

    Mary, I am totally with you on Pearce’s! Been going there since I could barely walk. Love that place. :-)

    Skully’s in Roscoe – they set up a little stand by Ashbey’s Ice Cream – and they have the best fresh veggies around! (aside from my own garden, of course!)

  5. Cassie July 17, 2010 9:02 AM

    Skully’s at the Ashby’s ice cream shop. Best sweeet corn around. The other veggies are great too, but the corn is our favorite.

    Susie’s Garden Patch in Garden Prairie. They have been there for 25 years and have great produce.

  9. Mary Brubach July 17, 2010 5:34 PM

    I am very bias when it comes to farm stands, and will have to say the best in the area is Susie’s Garden Patch, in Garden Prairie, IL. They’ve been in business for 25 years, and that’s where I’ve been going. This is a family oriented farm, with u-pick fruits and veggies throughout the summer.

    Susie’s Garden Patch in Garden Prairie (just outside of Belvidere). Love everything about them…especially their sweet corn and tomatoes.

  11. DeWayne July 17, 2010 6:24 PM

    Susie’s Garden Patch in Garden Prarie – the whole Family atmosphere – including an area where you can pic-nic with your own family –
    Makes it not only great produce – but a realy positive family experience. They always make us feel welcome. Great produce & a great experience.

  12. Donna July 17, 2010 6:30 PM

    I have been going for 25 years from Asparagus to Pumpkins. They are the best. We always go and get our produce there or at their farmers market stands.

  34. WI Weather Buff's Dog, Truman... July 18, 2010 3:25 PM

    … wants to know if only humans can vote or if dogs get to vote too.

    He wants to vote for Beloit Farmers Market which allows dogs and has vendors with home made dog treats too (“yummmmmmm“).

    No, no Truman, no dogs allowed on the computer!

  36. Marjean July 18, 2010 4:01 PM

    Susie’s Garden Patch has the best sweet corn and peaches in northern Illinois. They’ve perfected the sweet corn so that it just melts in your mouth. Unbelievable flavor! And the peaches that they bring back from MI are so juicy you need a bib! Worth the drive to Garden Prairie, or you can see them at Colonial Village and Edgebrook farm markets.

  37. Toni July 18, 2010 4:41 PM

    Susies Garden Patch is my vote. Great produce. Wonderful berries.

  41. Judy Vincent July 18, 2010 9:27 PM

    Susie’s Garden Patch in Garden Prairie is the best. They have great Super Sweet Corn, tomatoes, zucchini, and melons. Also good cucumbers for pickles. They also have tasty strawberries and run a Strawberry Festival in June. They have a u-pick and a place for families to picnic. They are a total family-run business. They love farming and promote it as a healthy way of life. All 3 of their daughters are either farmers or work in farm-related areas.

  42. Michelle Yoder July 18, 2010 9:49 PM

    Susie’s Garden Patch is the place! They are so friendly and fun. The veggies are the best, the pumpkin patch is sooooo big and the animals are sweet. My kids love it!

  51. Corrie Robison July 19, 2010 11:27 AM

    Susie’s Garden Patchin Garden Prairie, IL is by far my favorite farm stand. Even though it is a little further from my home than some others, she always has the best variety of products and her produce is always very fresh and fairly priced. Not only are they friendly they are always willing to offer good advice to the home gardener like myself to help me grow my garden as well as enjoy what they have to offer. Go Susie’s!!!!

  52. JoAnn Loch July 19, 2010 11:50 AM

    I enjoy the Friday Market on Water Street each week! The veggie stand next to Burlap Works is super good! Fresh as possible from the garden and CLEAN! Quality produce! Good prices, too…

  55. Betty July 19, 2010 3:11 PM

    Susie’s Garden Patch has my vote, they have always been my favorite after driving past there one day and turned around and went back. Sweet Corn is the best I ever had.

  56. Ted Isham July 19, 2010 7:37 PM

    Susie’s Garden Patch has the best sweet corn and even field corn to feed the squirrels in the winter.

  57. Mary Brubach July 19, 2010 7:39 PM

    If you like to pick apples, raspberries, or blueberries, you should visit Valley Orchard in Cherry Valley. If you like heirloom tomatoes or awesome landscaping plants visit the Zanders on Montague Rd. If you want to pick cherries visit Currants Orchard. You can get their info via Susie’s Garden Patch. That’s how I learned about them.

    Can’t say enough about Susie’s Garden patch in Garden Prairie…I grew up in Florida, where there was a veggie stand like Wisconsin has bars, and Susies has the best stuff, not to mention Doug & Susie are great people….King Dan

    Susie’s Garden Patch in Garden Prairie is a great farm stand farm. You get more than a farm stand — you get the whole farm with pick-your-own berries and lots of great produce!

  65. Christina July 24, 2010 11:03 AM

    Susie’s Garden Patch in Garden Prairie gets my vote!!! I’m getting tears in my eyes as I read all the nice things the costumers are posting about my parents. They had a dream 25 years ago to own their own farm and I can tell they have touched so many lives. Please note that not only do they sell awesome produce but the have donated and continue to donate that same awesome produce to area food pantry’s so everyone can enjoy it. Make sure to check out their website at or become a friend on facebook.
