Video of Many Generations

The tradition of being a farmers' market vendor often runs in the family. Sometimes this love for the local, fresh products has been in the family for years. This is very true for the Bizek family who have been selling at the farmers' market for three generations.

This impressive legacy revolves around the commitment to serve others with the best quality product possible. The Bizek family truely embody the spirit of farmers' markets.

Multigenerational Farmers' Market Vendors Keep on Selling

There has been a farmers market held in town for more than a century, and for many of those years, someone from Dennis Bizek's family has been on hand selling directly to the people.

"A lot of our customers have been the same over the years," Bizek said. "Others are the children of people who used to buy from my folks."

Bizek, 65, of rural Palo, is a third-generation seller at the farmers market. He said he and his wife have been continuing the tradition started by his grandfather, Mike, for 41 years, selling flowers and fresh produce.
