A Winter Farmers' Market?

Hi everyone -

I'm new to RI and heard about the Winter Farmers' Market opening this Saturday. Does anyone know more about it? Has anyone gone before?

The website is http://www.farmfresh.org/food/farmers...

I'm really wondering what kinds of things are available in the winter. Are there any other indoor farmers' markets in New England like this?

Thanks - I'd love some feedback.

  1. Two in eastern NY--Troy,a long standing year around market, and Schenectady, a new winter market.

    1. This is the first year in this new location. I'd imagine many of the same vendors will be back. It's in a lovely, interesting building.

      1. curiouscheese, from what I have readthere will be Breads, cheese, some meats and seafood and jams and jelliesand the late-fall crops (Broccoli, spainach, lettuce, brussel sprouts etc.) . I am looking foward to it!

        1. Oh yes! I love the Winter Market. I went every week last year and was always surprised by the selection throughout the winter. I'm addicted to the littleneck clams, the apples from Hill Orchards, cheese from Narragansett Creamery, and farm fresh eggs. Also, pecans and DELICIOUS oranges and grapefruits from a family farm in Georgia and Florida.

          I am pretty sure there are going to be more vendors this year. They are moving to Hope Artiste Village in Pawtucket, which has more room than AS220.

          1. I just heard he Stonington, Ct farmers mrket is open for the winter. I know the summer on is great, especially if you love seafood. I will get back with more info!
