The Brattleboro Winter Farmers’ Market opens its 14th season on Saturday, November 2nd once again in the C. F. Church Building at 80 Flat St in downtown Brattleboro. After the last outdoor market in October, fans of the famous summer farmer’s market in West Brattleboro, can simply follow many of their favorite vendors indoors to the only weekly farmers market in the region. The Brattleboro Winter Farmers’ Market is open every Saturday, 10- 2, November through March.
Visitors will find plenty of farms and local produce, and this great location provides easy convenient parking and a spacious market where we can adequately serve both our vendors and customers. Most weeks, market visitors will find over 2 dozen vendors, including many favorites from past seasons and some new faces as well.
According to the Farmers Market Coalition, a nonprofit dedicated to strengthening farmers markets across the country, the impact of direct farmer-to-consumer transactions at a market is greater than it might appear on the surface. Markets serve as community anchors, positively influencing community health and wealth, resulting in more viable regional economies, increased access to fresh, nutritious food, and stronger social networks that help keep communities healthy. Shopping at the Brattleboro Winter Farmers’ Market contributes to preserving rural livelihoods, and helps to keep well over 350 acres in diversified production making a huge difference to our local economy.
So, along with fresh produce, syrup, local meats, eggs, cheese and other farm products, you’ll find bread, yummy treats, great lunches, delicious pies, preserves, beautiful handmade gifts and live local music.
The Winter Farmers’ Market welcomes debit, credit and EBT (3SquaresVT) cards. EBT customers can turn $10 into $20 each week with Crop Cash Coupons thanks to NOFA-VT, and a collaborative USDA FINI Grant of several New England states headed by Farm Fresh Rhode Island.
