Brattleboro Winter Farmers’ Market Opens for 10th Season!

Join us as we kick off the 10th season of the Brattleboro Winter Farmers’ Market – one of the longest running diverse indoor farmers markets in Vermont.  Starting Saturday, November 7, come to the market and dazzle your senses at the beautiful River Garden in the heart of downtown Brattleboro.  Visitors will find more fresh local produce than ever before!

Each week we transform the space into a warm welcoming indoor marketplace.  You’ll find up to 30 vendors including favorites from past seasons.  Our regular farm vendors returning this season are Big Picture Farm, Circle Mountain Farm, Deep Meadows Farm, Deer Ridge Farm, Dwight Miller Orchards, Hickin’s Mountain Mowing, New Leaf CSA, Old Schoolhouse Plantery, Walnut Ridge Farm, and Wild Shepherd Farm.  Favorites from the past bringing back their crafts and great prepared food items include Susan Dunning’s Potteryworks, Orchard Hill Breadworks, Wild Flour Bakery, One World Soap, Vermont Quince, Sawyer’s Artisanal Cheese, Cai’s Dim Sum, Thai Hut, and more. New products to look for at the market this season include a wonderful array of jars of delicious local fruit juice, chocolates, woodcrafts, handmade bags and tunics, blown glass ornaments and beads.

So along with all your fresh produce and local meats, you’ll also find yummy sweets treats, great lunch offerings, delicious pies, preserves and much much more.  Come for your weekly family grocery shopping, and beautiful handmade holiday gifts.  Stay for a tasty lunch and live music. There is something at the market for everyone.

Tim Stevenson, founder of Post Oil Solutions, says, “It’s been fantastic to see how our local farms have
adapted to having a winter market outlet over the past nine years.  More and more area farmers are planning for and planting more winter storage crops and using season extension strategies to bring our market customers more fresh local food deeper into the winter season each year.”

The Winter Farmers’ Market welcomes EBT and Debit cards.  And each week, EBT customers can turn $10 into $20 with Crop Cash Coupons thanks to NOFA-VT and Wholesome Wave.  And if those coupons run
out, we’ll have our own Market Match program supported through grants and fundraising done by Post Oil Solutions and the market organizers.  We are committed to making the farmers market the place to go for everyone in our community from November through March to find everyday food for the week for your whole family!

The Winter Farmers’ Market is sponsored by Post Oil Solutions, a nonprofit grass-roots group actively working to build a sustainable community.  Open every Saturday through March 26, 2016.  Market
hours are generally 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM, with extended hours for holiday shopping (open to 3pm) between on December 5, 12 and 19.  The Winter Farmers’ Market is located at the Robert H. Gibson River Garden, 153 Main St., Brattleboro, VT.  Watch calendar listings for weekly musical talent and special market happenings.  Contact us at farmersmarket@postoilsolutions.or or call 802-869-2141.

  • Welcome Back, Winter Market!

    Yay! This market is such a wonderful boost to downtown in the bleak ( and oh so long!) winter months. We are really lucky to be able to indulge in fresh, local veggies and delicious food products created by local artisans. A lovely way to spend a Saturday morning.
