BLACK CREEK (WLUK) — A variety of seasonal plants and produce is ready for the picking at vegetable stands across Northeast Wisconsin.

For the past century the busy intersection in downtown Black Creek has a been a place to find some of the season’s best goods. Terry Schoenrock and his wife Georgia stop and shop just about every year.

“Today, I’m looking at tomatoes, a little bit, and the yard ornaments. We bought one yard ornament, and maybe a cabbage, a head-sized cabbage over here somewhere,” said Georgia Schoenrock, Appleton.

Kim Kamp says Wagner’s Market carries the fall favorites.

“We grow a lot of squash, and a lot of pumpkins. So that season is coming upon us, and they’ve just begun harvesting pumpkins and squash,” said Kim Kamp, Wagner’s Market.

Kamp says there are flowers too, like chrysanthemums, or mums, for short. She says the family farm grows 3,500 each season.

“Our truck holds about 105 mums, that we’re able to bring in at a time. And as we were unloading them, we actually had people waiting for the truck to get here, and then people were taking them out of our hands, as we were unloading them,” she said.

Kamp expects the supply to last about a month or so. Meanwhile, Terry and Georgia Schoenrock found the perfect head of cabbage, making their seasonal produce trip complete.

“If more people would get out more, and they would enjoy it. You just have to come and check it out, and see what all the excitement is and all the enjoyment of everything,” said Georgia Schoenrock, Appleton.

Wagner’s Market is scheduled to be open until December 1.
