More than 30Â farmers, bakers, and artisan crafters are moving indoors Saturday, December 4, for the sixth season of the WinterÂ Farmersâ€™ Market, which will be open Saturdays through March from 9 a.m. to noon.
The market is located in the gym at St. Maryâ€™s School at 323 Vermont Avenue in Oak Ridge. Customers may shop in person or choose curbside pickup or home delivery through the Market-To-Go program.
â€œThe WinterÂ Farmersâ€™ Market brings local food and local folks together in a unique and fun way, with great food, live music, cooking demonstrations, free kids’ activities, artisan crafts, and more, indoors all winter,â€Â said Rebecca Williams, director of Grow Oak Ridge, the local nonprofit that produces the market.
“We have two ways to shop again this year: in-person and online through Market-To-Go.”
The market offers anÂ abundance of locally grown cool season produce like kale, spinach, lettuce, and gourmet mushrooms, and even some winter strawberries and tomatoes, a press release said. It also carries free-range eggs, pasture-raised meats, tilapia, local honey, artisan breads, pastries, unique handmade bath and body products, and handmade gifts from local artisans.
