The happenings of Brookfield Village Farmers' Market

Last Thursday was another successful week at the Farmers' Market. Lot of people coming to pick up their free tote bags to do their market shopping in! Local business Sabella's Pub and Grill served their delicious homemade Italian Sausages with hot pepper. Brookfield Dance Academy gave a stellar performance along with their DJ, and local guitar player Alex Siy provided a great selection of hits that made a great market atmosphere! With kids selling homemade lemonade, candy, and jewelry, our market is one of a kind for the whole family. We had a full lot of vendors in our NEW LOT location.

Recipe of the Week: Lemon Herb Chicken

In need of a light summer meal? Look no further! Dominion Valley Farm from Allentown, WI has come up with a great recipe using their all natural, pasture raised chickens! Pair with a romaine lettuce salad with rosemary balsamic dressing for a complete meal.


¼ cup vegetable oil ¼ cup ketchup

2 Tbsp lemon juice 2 Tbsp soy sauce

¼ tsp salt and pepper ½ tsp rosemary leaves

½ tsp marjoram leaves ½ tsp thyme leaves

1 whole DVF chicken, cut into 8 pieces

5 cups Corn Flakes, crushed to 3 cups



In a large mixing bowl, stir together oil, ketchup, lemon juice, soy sauce, salt, pepper, and herbs. Add chicken and turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate several hours, spooning marinade over chicken.

Drain chicken pieces slightly. Coat with cereal. Place in a single layer in shallow pan coated with vegetable cooking spray. Bake at 350 for 50-55 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink. Do not cover pan or turn chicken while baking.
