He said he was able to be a part of this year’s HarborMarket because of a grant the market was offering to small businesses. Zehrung is the owner of Patriot Greenz, a company he started just a year ago, growing micro greens and wheatgrass. It helped offset the cost of booking a booth.
But, maybe, the most excited person was Jerry Zehrung. He’s a HarborMarket first-timer. The Kenosha HarborMarket kicked off May 8

Zehrung said the grant allows him to to be at the market for the entire season, and he’s excited to get his name and product some exposure. “The vendors at this market, they get an opportunity to see that direct reaction between what they do, and how people enjoy it,” Zehrung said. “And I would be a fool not to do that.” “It’s one of the key parts of our mission, to help local small businesses establish themselves, grow, and thrive,” Forgianni said.
Andrea Forgianni, the HarborMarket’s executive director, said the market made ‘’tens of thousands” of dollars available for the small business grants. “It was kind of a make or break,” Zehrung said. “That ability to procure that is why we’re here. It made it possible.”
