Just because you're wearing your cozy slippers and winter is around the corner doesn't mean that you can't still enjoy your local farmers' market. Many area markets are open for limited winter dates as well. While some of the vendors that sell during the summer also make appearances at the winter markets, it's best to check with the individual market if you're hoping to purchase from a specific farm or supplier.
Check out the following markets to buy produce, baked goods, meats and holiday bits and baubles.
