We are excited for the Second season of the Heirloom Winter Farmers' Market at the Fairgrounds! Hard to believe it is that time of year again. Our first market is this Saturday, November 2, 2013 from 10am-2pm in the Floriculture building.
The intention of the Heirloom Winter Farmers’ Market at the Fairgrounds is to showcase the bounty of food products from our region all year long; the market focuses on food and agricultural products and handmade local wares.

Every Saturday November - December and 2nd and 4th Saturdays January - April.

Paul and I enjoy visiting the Winter Farmers' Market. On our last visit last year, I bought mushrooms (yum!), and ordered a handmade hat with vintage/upcycled fabrics.

We made a podcast about when we visited a couple years ago, podcast 123, and talked quite a bit about Paula Jean and her lavender and value added foods (jams, jellies, chutneys and such).

Will Paula be back this year? What vendors will be there?

I think that this is a wonderful way to show the local population that these 'farmers' live there year round. Everybody thinks about them when tomatoes and zucchinis are in abundance everywhere. By showing their presence when there is no abundance, it helps bring home the message that they are not just there for 'the good times', and just like everybody else, they need to support themselves during the off season.

 
I'm so happy! And I wish to make this tiny ad happy too:
