I love shopping at the Farmers Market on Third Street and 14th Avenue East. I just received an email from Lois Hoffbauer stating that her farm has won an award. The Hoffbauers are mainstays at the Farmers Market. Be sure to visit the Farmers Market on Wednesday and Saturday mornings. Also visit Doug and Lois' new website:

Here is what Lois' email says:

"Doug & I have just received the 2009 Farm Family of the Year in St. Louis County from the University of MN. To read all about it, go to We are very proud of this award and will be honored in Redwood Falls at Farm Fest on August 6th. We are having a kick-off celebration at the Market on August 5th. More details on that later. WDIO TV was out to our farm tonight to interview Doug. It should be on tonight and again tomorrow morning."
