Winter Farmers' Market opens downtown today


BRATTLEBORO -- The Winter Farmers' Market returns to the Robert H. Gibson River Garden, 157 Main St., for the eighth season of the longest running diverse indoor farmers' market in southern Vermont. With the upcoming transfer of the River Garden property from BABB to Strolling of the Heifers, the Winter Farmers' Market keeps its home on Main Street. Fans of the famous outdoor summer farmers' market in West Brattleboro, can follow many of their favorite vendors indoors starting Saturday, Nov. 2, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Visitors to the Winter Farmers' Market in downtown Brattleboro will find more farms and more local produce than before. Over 30 vendors including many favorites from past seasons will be participating.

Along with fresh produce, syrup, local meats, eggs and other farm products, there will be sweets or savory breakfast treats, lunch offerings, pies, preserves and handmade gifts.

The Winter Farmers' Market welcomes EBT and Debit cards. While funding lasts, EBT customers can turn $10 into $20 each week with Market Match Coupons. This food access program makes healthy local food more accessible to more local people. The program is supported through grants and fundraising done by market organizers, in conjunction with a community-match campaign.
