But what happens in the winter? As the demand for local produce continues to grow some places are continuing to offer markets throughout the winter. Farmers can continue to grow many cold weather crops through the winter months, and other crops can be stored well to come to market weeks or months after harvest. This means that winter markets can offer a wider selection than ever before.
In Massachusetts there are many winter markets that operate regionally. Check out the SEMAP's guide to winter markets, available online. The guide will provide the locations, dates, and hours of many markets available in the area. Outside of Massachusetts? Search online for winter farmers market in your local area, and you will likely find one to visit!
