I also love going to farmers' markets. While I have my favorites, I also love to discover new ones. So, when Eric Bickernicks contacted me a few weeks ago about Newton's first ever winter farmers' market, I decided to pay it a visit.
Bickernicks is the mastermind behind Wicked Delicious Kettle Corn, and a passionate vendor at the Newton indoor winter farmers' market. Bickernicks told me that he's trying to get the word out about the market to keep him and his fellow vendors in business during the winter months - because if few people show up during the next few weeks, many vendors will likely not come back...which creates a domino effect.
Newton's winter market features about 10-15 vendors, with a variety of options to choose from. Items like maple syrup, handmade soap, cheese, soda, and even hydroponic lettuce are just a few of the locally made gems for sale. (For a full list of vendors, click here).
The Newton winter market takes place at the Hyde Community Center every Tuesday from 1:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., and it runs through mid-June. If you're looking for quality, local food and handcrafted items to get you through the winter, I highly recommend paying this market a visit.
Do you go to farmers' markets in the winter? If yes, which one(s) do you frequent?
