The February Winter Market took place this Sunday, and we were happy to have beautiful clear weather all morning long. We had over 500 customers, who snacked on fresh pastries while searching for their favorite winter crops. Vendors continue to provide local seasonal produce throughout the winter, and included kale, chard, sunflower spouts, bread, honey, preserves, and much more. Our next winter market will be on March 6th at 11AM. We’ll see you there!
Happy New Year to everyone from our vendors at the Market. We hope your holidays were filled with family, friends and local food! The first winter market of the New Year took place this past Sunday. Although only 10 vendors had items to bring to the Market, there was a wide variety of items. Radishes, bok choy, cabbage, fresh bread, potatoes, onions, baked goods and fresh eggs were some of the tasty items at the Market this month. The February market will have the same plus more, so mark your calendar for February 7, 11AM-1PM! See you next month…bring a friend!
What exactly can you get at the Market in December? If you came to the first winter market of the season, you found out! Salad greens, garlic, apples, carrots, radishes, potatoes, yams, bread, preserves, eggs, spices, baked goods and honey were provided by the vendors this weekend. Thanks to all the customers that came out to support our vendors … farmers still have to make a living in the off season! The next winter market will be the first of the New Year and will take place January 3rd 2016 – 11AM-1PM. We hope to see you there!
The Market season went out with a bang this year! Thank you to everyone that came out to visit the 20 vendors at the Market, we hope you stocked up on everything you needed! As always, breakfast burritos were provided by Apple Tree Cafe, who has been at the Market all year providing you with a hearty breakfast. Thank you to all the vendors that made this season such a success. Vendors had the last of the tomatoes, celery, apples, corn, and squash, but have no fear! Farmers are already growing winter crops and preparing for the winter season. On December 6th, you’ll be able to find items like bread, eggs, spinach and lettuce, radishes, onion and garlic. More items at the winter markets can be found on the left sidebar. Until then, have a Happy Thanksgiving and thank you for being a part of our local food movement. Vendors will be at the Market on December 6th, 11AM-1PM.
It might be getting cold, and the trees are looking tired, but the season isn’t over! We had over 20 vendors at the Market this Sunday, and we are expected to have the same vendors at the Market next week.

We would also like to thank Mood Swing for stepping up and providing music at the Market, thank you! Join us next week for a hot breakfast burrito and stock up on all the fresh produce you can before the season finishes up! There will be plenty of vegetables to can or freeze! See you there, 9AM-12PM.
