Deerfield Apple Festival
September 25, 2022 8AM-3PM
Thanks for your interest in our events.
BITTERSWEET BLESSINGS FARM is located at 4509 State Road 73, Deerfield, WI. Deerfield is located between Madison & Milwaukee on the I-94 corridor. We host 2 large crafter/vendor/antiques-collectibles markets. These events are held ‘rain or shine’.
DEERFIELD MARKET EXPO: May 22, 2022
DEERFIELD APPLE FESTIVAL: Sept 25, 2022
Both shows run from 8am-3pm. We allow set-up the day before, as well as the morning of, each event.
The Apple Festival is very much like an arts/crafts event, with a few exceptions: We will host many veggie/fruit/flower/fall harvest/etc vendors. And, since we have an orchard on the farm, the theme of the event will be the apple! At the show, guests can watch (or take a turn at stirring) fresh Apple Butter being cooked over an open fire; witness and taste fresh pressed Apple Cider; enjoy fresh apple pie, jams & jellies, apple cider doughnuts (all from the farm), or maybe stroll through the orchard and pick some apples for yourself…. you get the picture: Apples!
We strive to put on the very best shows possible and we are constantly on the look-out for quality and unique vendors.
We, at Bittersweet Blessings Farm, have been very busy preparing for this year’s events! You will be amazed at the improvements that have been happening on the farm, as well as the improvements to the events venue.
All Markets include indoor and outdoor vendor spaces (only 52 indoor spaces available), all indoor spaces are located inside old, restored farm buildings (including the historic 1901 dairy barn); We limit all spaces to no more than 15% with direct sales. Our shows consist of Crafters, Fine arts, Antiques, Gourmet Foods, Flea Market Collectibles, Direct Sales, a Food Court and Live Entertainment. Plus, FREE activities for the children (ie: balloon animals, caricatures, temporary tattoos, face paint, petting zoo, apple picking, ice cream, etc. (availability, season and dependent on weather)…
Hundreds of vendors and Thousands of shoppers.
Advertising is well under way, improving on last year’s public awareness of our shows. We will have newspaper, shoppers, yard signs, internet, posters, and highway billboards along State Hwy 73, Hwy 12 & 18, and ….we contract two (2) billboards on I-94 between Madison and Milwaukee, one eastbound and one westbound.

At Bitter Sweet Blessings Farm, just like any megamarket, we have vendors selling their wares in multiple media. From crafters to farmers, we have different vendors selling their products. Our flea market and farmer's market offer spaces both inside and outside for vendors to set up.
In our market, you can find fine artworks, antiques, and gourmet food as well. Although this Apple Market appears to resemble a big market (similar to our Deerfield Market Expo), the theme of this market is centered around the apple!
Bittersweet Blessings Farm is home to an heirloom apple orchard. Established nearly 90 years ago, the fruits from these trees are firmer, juicier, and tastier than those in most grocery stores.
Still talked about as a local fall destination when the apples, pears, cherries, grapes, and plums ripen, the farm has a long history of providing fresh fruit to shoppers in southern WI.
As the name/theme of this event implies, activities of the day will center around the apple. There will be things like:
You can also take advantage of photo opportunities amongst the numerous fall/harvest decorations throughout the farm. Maybe even grab some $3 pumpkins for your fall décor.
