WINTER Market Tips

The Downtown Farmers’ Market has something for all ages. If you’ve never attended or have questions about The Winter Market, here are a few tips:

What To Bring

Bring Your Own Bag

Some vendors have plastic bags, but it’s best to bring your own canvas shopping bag or basket from home. It’s much better than having all your items bagged separately. The Market sells the ever-popular jute shopping bags at the Information Booth.

Bring a Cooler

Storing a cooler in your car helps keep food items cool, especially if you don’t go home right away.

Try Something New

Buy something you haven’t tried before. The Market is the perfect place to learn about food. Never tried kohlrabi? A vendor can advise you on how to select and prepare it.

Ask Questions

Ask vendors questions when you see unfamiliar produce. Vendors and farmers love to share their knowledge and can even give you recipes and cooking tips.
