The Winter Farmers Market returns for a sixth year this November, continuing a mission to provide access to locally grown and crafted eats long into the winter season. With food trucks, samples and over 20 hyper-local vendors and farmers, there is sure to be a diverse selection to enjoy.
This event has grown from humble beginnings to a popular winter event, expanding from a few vendors to a community staple that brings hundreds together in a celebration of local foods and goods. “People love it, they really look forward to it,” organizer Michelle Bruhn says. Even when the market moved outdoors, crowds turned out to support vendors despite the winter cold. As things change throughout the years, so does the market, and adaptations to the community-honored event only make it more exciting. “I have lots of big plans,” Bruhn says.
