Our vendors are the heart and soul of the Winter-Spring Farmers’ Market! Take a moment to learn more about a local grower of Wisconsin culinary herbs and producer of herbal teas.
Nature’s Herban Scents in Grafton doesn’t use any pesticides or artificial fertilizers to grow their herbs. All herbs are harvested by hand at the peak of flavor and preserved using various methods according to each plant’s requirements. Some are preserved best by hanging to dry naturally, and others are best in a dehydrator to quickly preserve flavors.
They offer a variety of cooking herbs, including: thyme, oregano, marjoram, sage, basil, and tarragon. They also produce a special Italian blend seasoning. The fresh dried herbs are packaged in 4 oz. amber spice jars to help prevent flavor loss due to light.
Tea blends are prepared from the “tea garden”. Popular herbs include: chamomile, lavender, lemon verbena, lemon balm, catnip, mint, and fennel.
Nature’s Herban Scents
offers several tea blends!
- Relaxation Tea – a blend of lemon balm, rosemary, lavender, chamomile and cloves
- Lavender Mint Tea – a blend of lavender, chocolate mint & peppermint
- Stomach Calming Tea – a blend of catnip, lemon balm, lemon verbena, peppermint & marjoram
They can often be found at the Port Washington Winter-Spring Farmers’ Market. Contact them at (262) 377-6577 for more information and updates on their seasonal teas and herbs. The last Spring Farmers’ Market of the season is Saturday, May 25th! Don’t miss it!
Transition Ozaukee and PortFish, Ltd will sponsor the 6th Annual Sustainability Fair on Saturday, May 18th from 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. at the First Congregational Church at 131 N. Webster St. in Port Washington – same great place where the Winter-Spring Farmers’ Market happens!
The theme of this year’s Fair will be “The Economics of Happiness” – focusing on the need to establish and support a strong local economy. The Economics of Happiness, a documentary film by the International Society for Ecology & Culture (ISEC) about the worldwide movement for economic localization, will be screened at the fair. The documentary describes a world moving simultaneously in two opposing directions: government and Big Business continue to promote globalization and the consolidation of corporate power, while communities are coming together to re‐build more human scale, ecological economies based on a new paradigm ‐ an economics of localization. The film is sponsored by Renew Port Holdings.
The Fair will also feature a variety of local, independent businesses, a silent auction, a play of The Lorax by Dr. Suess (back by popular demand and featuring homeschoolers from Ozaukee Co.), a children’s table, local food and more!
Also, as part of the Mission 4/1 Earth, First Congregational Church is hosting Legacy Recycling, who will take just about anything that requires batteries or plugs in from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. The Sustainability Fair is free and open to the public! For more information, see the Transition Ozaukee website or contact Mary Boyle at email@example.com or (262) 573-6678.

Our vendors are the heart and soul of the Winter Farmers’ Market! Take a moment to learn more about an area honey farm that offers a variety of sweet products.
Little Mountain Apiaries is a family-owned and operated honey farm based in Port Washington. The venture started as a passion about 2 years ago that has grown steadily, and continues to grow.
They simply love being outside working with the bees. Most people don’t understand how gentle bees actually are and most of the time they can work with them without any protection on. What bees do for all of us, is way more than the sweet honey they produce.
The family actually has numerous yards throughout Washington, Sheboygan, Ozaukee Fond du Lac and Dodge counties and within those locations, they are running around 150 of colonies of bees this year.
They produce all-natural, high quality, raw honey through small batch processing and straining, to give you the best in traditional taste and texture. Their extracting process involves keeping the honey raw with very low heat. All they do is honey products, and it’s their belief that their honey tastes as close to comb honey as it gets.
Little Mountain Apiary can often be found at the Port Washington Winter-Spring Farmers’ Market. The next (and last of the season!) market takes place on Saturday, May 25th 2013. You can contact Little Mountain Apiary on their Facebook page, too!
