Products sold at the market: Jester Juice Lemonades are squeezed right in front of you! We never use a mix. It’s made with one lemon, limes, raspberries, strawberries or cranberries. Then we add pure cane sugar or sugar free with stevia. Then we add ice and water, shake real hard, pour into a 32-ounce cup ... Yum!

How did you get started? I went to a fair and got a bad lemonade, obviously a Country Time type of mix. I saw them just put a lemon on top. I realized there had to be a better way to see the drink made in front of you and speed up the process, make it a fun experience. So, I made my smashers and cutters to produce the show and a great healthy drink. I even use a clear cup so you see the drink. It evolved into a great business. We do up to 80 work days/events a year.
What do regular customers say about you? “Delicious, all natural, you mean I can have it sugar free?”
What do you like about Kenosha’s market? The people are great and there are so many options for food, drinks, great produce. It’s just a great variety and balance of vendors. It’s huge and they have a lot of people attending every week. It’s very consistent.
What’s your most unique or unusual market story? I’ll have to think about that.
Do you have other favorite stands at the market? I love the new french fry guy and both barbecue tents, but I like all the vendors when I have time to visit. All nice people ...
