Description
Farming once distinguished the area, but now tourism and shopping help fuel the city's economy. One former resident in particular draws fans from afar; Caroline Quiner “Ma” Ingalls, the mother of “Little House on the Prairie” author Laura Ingalls, was the first pioneer born in the community in 1839. “Little House in Brookfield,” part of the Little House series, was based on her.
The Brookfield Farmers' Market, in business since 1991, sells a bounty of seasonal produce, including many heirloom varieties. In addition to fresh fruits and vegetables, vendors offer diverse products such as maple syrup, specialty cheeses, cut flowers, wool products and wooden furniture. It sets up Saturday mornings from 7:30 to noon, May through October, at 2000 N. Calhoun Rd.; phone (262) 784-7804 for details.
