Captain's Review of new Brittingham Park Farmers Market

June 16, 2014 3:48 PM

For the past two Tuesday afternoons, Brittingham Park at 700 W. Washington Avenue is now the scene of a new event drawing more people into this beautiful setting on Monona Bay.   Bayview-Braxton Neighborhood Officer Kim Alan over the past several months has worked with "Triangle" residents, staff from Madison Parks and CDA and many others, to organize a weekly "Farmers Market" at the Brittingham Park Shelter.   Last week, I had a chance to stop down myself and will give a short review here on our blotter.  First of all, "Mary" from the Zuzu Cafe on Drake Street passed out samples and recipies on how to prepare "rhubarb crisp" which was I must say simply fantastic.  The first sample was so good I had to try a second just to confirm the first one was as good as I thought it was.   I then made my way through the vendors and walked away with spring greens, fresh "kale" for my morning smoothies, and finally some fantastic asparagus which was used as a side for a venison tenderloin.   Overall, this police captain's critique is giving "high praise" for the new Brittingham Park Farmers Market.

The market will run every Tuesday afternoon from 3p-6p throughout the summer.  If you live in the area, or work downtown and your commute takes you past Brittingham on Tuesday afternoons, please make a point to stop down and check this out.   Kudos to Officer Kim Alan and everyone who has helped bring this to fruition !!!
