Winter is here, and many people have had to deal with the harsh reality that their local farmers’ market has closed for the season. Is it really possible to eat locally even in the winter?
That depends on where you live. While many markets are seasonal, cooler climates do have their share of year-round farmers’ markets. You just have to know where to look.
Winter markets can be found all across the US even in the coldest climates. For example, Madison Wisconsin has a year-round market. There are also winter markets in Vermont, including in Burlington, Dorset, and Waterbury. In Chicago, there’s the Green City Market.
