When you think of the phrase “farmers market”, it usually brings to mind visions of walking amongst outdoor tents in the warm sunshine. However, lower temperatures don’t mean that farmers markets cease to exist. There is still plenty of local, seasonal shopping to experience, even as the cold weather rages on outside. Indoor farmers markets offer a warm and inviting place to find locally-grown foods and unique hand-crafted items that can be purchased in the off-season.
Winter farmers markets are a slightly different shopping experience than the ones you may have during the summer season. There is no better time than now to discover all the benefits winter farmers markets have to offer. Read on to learn more about the advantages of shopping local during the winter:
While many farmers markets close up shop in the wintertime, we don’t. At Cowtown Farmers Market, we invite you to visit us every Tuesday and Saturday from 8-4pm, even in the cold weather months where we take our markets indoors. During your visit, you’ll benefit from a heated facility featuring over 400 vendors that are selling anything from fresh produce to one-of-a-kind vintage treasures. Additionally, although our famous rodeo is closed until May, visitors who come to our market on Saturdays can also attend our live weekly auction beginning at 11am. We welcome you to sip on hot drinks and enjoy a variety of snacks while you take in your surroundings.
Visit our markets every Tuesday and Saturday, rain or shine. For more information, please fill out our online contact form, or if you are interested in becoming a vendor, take a look at our vendor requirements.
