After my great success shopping at the Milwaukee Winter Farmer’s Market, I was left with a question. How hard would eating local be in other areas, especially in smaller towns?
As it so happened, we had time booked this weekend in Fish Creek, Wisconsin. With a winter population under 1000 (which swells enormously in summer), it is more of a resort area than a typical small town. But shops that don’t do enough business in winter close their doors until spring, so I decided it would still be a reasonable way to research this question.
