While the Flyte Family Farms vends many different farmers' markets across the state. In Madison its stand can be found on East Mifflin Street at the Dane County Farmers' Market, as well as the West Side Community Market.
The Daily Page: What's the most popular item you sell at the market?
Carrie Flyte: Blueberries have been a big hit, but we recently started growing dry, edible beans, and I have a feeling they will be quite popular in the future.
What's the one thing you wish you grew, but don't?
Since we added potatoes last year, I think we pretty much grow everything we want to grow. One thing I would like to expand on is our organics.
Do you have a recipe to share?
