Though the majority of farmers markets end in September, many markets and farm stands in our region have winter hours, and some host special holiday craft fairs! Don’t worry – we did the digging for you! We’ve compiled a list of all the events and special hours in our region below.
*Market managers and farmers! If you’re holding special market or farm stand winter hours, or hosting a craft fair for your vendors, please reach out and let us know. We’d be happy to add you to this list. Farmers who are still selling late blooming or off-season product, hit us up, too. We’re happy to link to your site or Facebook page here. Email Kayla at firstname.lastname@example.org with your event date or winter hours, your contact information, location, and request a listing on this page.*
