Frequent HarborMarket shoppers are sure to recognize Riverwood Produce Farm and the farm’s owner, Mike Toboyek. It’s the farm with the tie—dyed tablecloths! Mike has had a stake in the farm for the last 15 years and has been coming to the Market for 13 years now. This farm is located in Kenosha and best known for their springtime asparagus. In the fall and winter, items like carrots, Brussels sprouts, celery root, and other root vegetable are popular.
When the farm was purchased, it came with the Asparagus crop. Mike began selling the fresh spring stalks because people loved having homegrown vegetables. Before long, he was growing more varieties of produce and selling at the weekly market. Riverwood’s crops are available exclusively at Kenosha HarborMarket.
But the farm doesn’t just grow veggies. Hand knit and crocheted items, such as blankets, hats, scarves, and more are also made by one of the business partners. The farm employs about five people during the prime harvesting season, but you’ll usually see Mike at the Market. So stop by and say hello!
