The Winter Farmers’ Market returns to the River Garden for the eighth season of the longest running diverse indoor farmers’ market in southern Vermont. With the upcoming transfer of the River Garden property from BABB to Strolling of the Heifers, the Winter Farmers’ Market keeps it wonderful home on Main St. Fans of the famous outdoor summer farmer’s market in West Brattleboro, can simply follow many of their favorite vendors indoors starting Saturday, November 2 from 10 – 2.
Visitors to the Winter Farmers’ Market in downtown Brattleboro will find more farms and more local produce than ever before. Each week the beautiful River Garden is transformed into a warm welcoming indoor marketplace. You’ll find over 30 vendors including many favorites from past seasons as well as a number of new faces too.
Along with all your fresh produce, syrup, local meats, eggs and other farm products, you’ll find yummy sweets or savory breakfast treats, great lunch offerings, delicious pies, preserves and beautiful handmade gifts. Come for the local farm produce, homemade foods, or holiday gift shopping and stay for a tasty lunch and live music. There is something at the market for everyone.
Tim Stevenson, founder of Post Oil Solutions says, "We are so thrilled to see how this market has grown and developed over the past seven years. We now have more area farmers planting more winter storage crops and using season extension strategies for fresh local greens deep into the winter.”
The Winter Farmers’ Market welcomes EBT and Debit cards. While funding lasts, EBT customers can turn $10 into $20 each week with our Market Match Coupons. This food access program is our commitment to making healthy local food more accessible to more local people. The program is supported through grants and fundraising done by market organizers, in conjunction with a community-match campaign. Individuals, businesses or groups interested in contributing to that effort can contact us to find out more or use the “Donate’ button on the Post Oil Solutions home page.
