Baraboo Candy Company, Mark's Produce and Pierce's Grocery

This is the second of 3 post from our stay at a CG near Baraboo, WI.

Baraboo, WI.  Wednesday 8 August 2013

64 deg. overcast, no wind.
Forecast = high temp. 78 deg, mostly sunny.

By 11:00 yesterday morning, Jim and Linda were in CLT and heading out of the CG on their way to the Baraboo Candy Company.
Linda ready to go in and buy some of that great SF candy.

This is a bench shaped like a cow. The kids love to sit on it and get their pictures taken. :-)

Linda really likes the sugar free candy that they sell, so when we’re in this area she stocks up.  This time it was no different.  ;-)

From there, they headed down to Mark’s Market, which is that produce stand that I mentioned the other day.

 They have great produce that is grown locally, much of it by Mark and his wife.

Lots of fresh vegetables and fruits.

Lots of different kinds of melon as well as some preserves in the jars.

Some really sweet, sweet corn!!! 

From there, they headed to Pierce’s Marketplace in Baraboo to purchase some groceries and some of that coffee that Jim likes so well.
As you can see by the sign, they've been in business since 1924.

Lots of people shop at Pierce's

By the time they were finished shopping at Pierce’s both Jim and Linda were tired so they headed back here, where they had to try to find room for everything that they had purchased.

For dinner last night, they headed out to the little town of Briggsville where there’s a restaurant on a lake that Jim knew about, but when they got there, there was a sign on the door that said that the restaurant was closed on Tuesday’s, so they came back to Wisconsin Dells and ate at Mitzi’s American Grill.

From what I understand, the food and the service was very good and both Jim and Linda said that they would not hesitate to go back again.

Today, the plan is to go to the flag store over in Reedsburg and the go to the cheese store in Lake Delton. After that, they’ll come back here and start to get Bobbie T ready to leave here tomorrow.

Did you know that August 7th is "Purple Heart Day"?
