Wisconsin knows how to do summer right. After toughing it out through those long, cold winters - when we can finally get outside we want to make the most of it! Wauwatosa is no exception, with our own wealth of outdoor activities (and of course, the patios) to enjoy.
A neighborhood watch for the 21st century. Local plumbing recommendations. A community message board regarding a potential dog park. Understanding bike trail etiquette. Selling the play-set your kids have outgrown. Free rummage/garage sale listings.
Believe it or not, this Saturday marks the start of the 6th Annual Tosa Farmers Market in the Village of Wauwatosa. Six years… wow! Many of us probably remember when it first started - excitement of having our own (again). It has become stronger and more vibrant each summer since then. The Market’s social media accounts have been gearing us up for what’s to come (not to mention come back) this year. Eager with anticipation - as I’m guessing many others are - I thought I’d have a chat with Pam Christopherson, President of the Board of the Directors for the Tosa Farmers Market, to find out what’s in store for this year. In her second year as President, and sixth on the Board of Directors, Pam also offered an overview of how things began.
The last post I wrote was about some of my all-time favorite local casual veggie options in our area.
Yep, I'm one of them... one of those annoying vegetarians who brings the fun level down by asking "is there meat in that," "apple chicken salad without the chicken, please" or "may I substitute fruit for the breakfast sausage?" You get used to asking questions like that all the time. You also get used to people's responses (eye rolling, etc.).
