Winter Farmers Markets: A Complete List (Hint: Many are This Weekend!)

0

Just because it’s winter doesn’t mean we can’t shop local. Indoor winter farmers markets are becoming as popular as the summer ones. And two of the monthly markets — White Plains and Hastings — are happening this weekend.

Of course, you can expect farmers to bring root vegetables and preserves, but you’ll also find tender greenhouse or hydroponic greens, local fish from Long Island, baked goods and fabulous prepared foods.

After the jump, a look at our winter markets, and the vendors you’ll find at them.
