People Of The Driftless

Rachel Olson – Viroqua Public Market

Tell us about yourself and what you do for work or business?
I was born and raised in Viroqua, WI. I have lived here most of my life, besides about a decade in La Crosse when I was in college. My husband and I moved back to help with the family business. I stay because of my family and the store and because I don’t want to live anywhere else.

We run the indoor market in Viroqua, which houses about 100 vendors from the area. We have been in business for almost 20 years now.

Gabriel Oakes - Riverside Swing Addicts

Gabriel and Leah met at a dance only a year and a half ago and were married a year later. You wouldn’t guess it, but Leah wasn’t a dancer. She accredits the skills to her dance master, her husband.

Gabriel started Riverside 6 years ago. His primary motivation is teaching dance in an inclusive, fun, and supportive environment.

Gabriel also teaches dancing at weddings, bachelor/ette parties, and employers city-wide events as well.
