Local Favorites at Decorah Farmers Market

Looking for some pumpkins to make a pie, or decorate your front steps? Come to Winneshiek Farmers Market in Decorah to find fresh, local fall fare!

Meet the family

Check out the Benjegerdes Greenhouse of Postville, Iowa. You will find them at the Oneota Co-op in Decorah. They have fresh produce, beautiful plants, and flowers for sale. Owner Janet Benjegerdes is helped by parents David and Vivian and her friendly sister Carol. They are attendees of the McGregor Market for the past 27 years. 

Mark your calendar

The Benjegerdes will be at the Co-op, Wednesday afternoons from three to six, and Saturday mornings from eight to eleven each week. 

The last market day is November 1st. After, there will be four indoor markets at The Winneshiek County Fairgrounds November 8th and 22nd. In December mark your calendar for the 6th & 20th.

Fresh produce

Look for the pumpkin wagon parked beside their booth. Currently they are selling dried flowers, pumpkins squash, gourds, broom corn and Janet’s old-fashioned jam. Their produce consists of tomatoes, sweet potatoes, sweet and hot peppers, carrots, onions, garlic, and beets.

Location & more information

Their greenhouse is at 115 US Hwy 52 before Postville. It has been family run for 27 years. The quality greenhouse is open to the public mid April to mid June and then by appointment 563-864-3081.

Remember to support your local growers. Buy local, fresh food from the people you know and trust! See you at the market!
