Winter Farmer's Markets

So I know I am a little early...but am thinking ahead to our Christmas festivities. I'd really like to prepare all things local but know that as we get deeper into the winter months it will become increasingly difficult to hunter gather from farmers. I know the SLM has the northside open all year but am wondering if there are any other of our markets that will be open that late in the year? If not, where else should I be looking? I've heard good things about Fiesta Farms recently....

Thanks in advance!

    Not a farmers' market but there are usually gourmet food vendors at the Sugar Plum Fair fundraiser for the National Ballet School. November 9-11.

      Hi Jamie, that sounds interesting. I haven't been for many years but last time I went they only had fancy candy apples and sugar plums for sale. Any idea what types of food they currently sell?

        It won;t help much with your christmas planning, but were you aware that the Brickworks Market has decided to stay open until December 1st?
