Sad to say, but we have made the difficult decision to cancel tomorrow’s farmers market at the Winston Prouty Campus. The forecast for this storm with lots of snow and continuing well into the market day is just about the worst kind of timing!
We had been fortunate enough to avoid this scenario so far, but many of our vendors have already made the decision that they wouldn’t be taking the risk, and we don’t want you to take the risk of going out in that weather either.
And then there was 1…just 1 more chance to order for curbside pick up from the15th season of the Brattleboro Winter Farmers’ Market – a season unlike any others!

SNAP/EBT customers can turn $10 into $40 each week through January with market match coupons thanks to grants from NOFA-VT, C&S Wholesale Grocers, New England Grassroots Fund, Brattleboro Savings & Loan, and individual gifts from caring community members.
As you may know, the Brattleboro Winter Farmers’ Market is currently 100% online pre-orders for Curbside Pick up. To effectively manage the volume of orders and items that our market producers need to make, bake, pick, pack and label for your Saturday Pick up, and so our Curbside Team can better serve you at pick up time, we are making a few changes:
1. Market orders will close at 9 AM on Thursday starting this week. This will be especially helpful as we have two Friday holidays in a row coming up! So shop early!
As of Saturday, November 28, the Brattleboro Winter Farmers’ Market is pivoting to CURBSIDE PICK UP SERVICE ONLY. There will not be an in-person walk up and shop market at least through the holidays. With COVID19 cases rising rapidly in Vermont and all around us, the market Steering Committee has decided that continued in-person indoor operations, while significantly modified for safety, poses too great a risk to the safety of all in our market community – our customers, market vendors, staff and volunteers. We chose not to wait until we were forced to react to the report of a positive COVID case within the market community.
But the good news is, that you will still be able to safely and conveniently shop from all of our regular market vendors in one place from the comfort of your home. Just as in the physical market, our new online ordering system puts all that our producers have to offer in one place for you to browse and choose.
Montpelier, Vt. – Governor Phil Scott today outlined some additional openings as part of the phased restart of Vermont’s economy, introduced last week.
The Governor’s Stay Home, Stay Safe order remains in effect, but with modeling continuing to indicate Vermonters are significantly slowing the spread of the virus, the Administration is taking a cautious, incremental and evidence-based approach to putting Vermonters back to work.
Governor Scott has emphasized the need for continued – and even expanded – vigilance as the state implements its restart strategy, saying: “Restarting the economy requires each of us to take a lot of personal responsibility. Each and every one of us has to do our part to help prevent the spread and protect the vulnerable by adhering to all of the social distancing and public health guidance.”
Because of the concern with COVID19 spreading via public gatherings, a number of our vendors will not be coming to the market this week. We were going to officially cancel the market, but at least one intrepid farmer, Elizabeth Wood from New Leaf CSA insisted on coming down to sell veggies to you, and she will be joined by Mary Ellen from High Goose Farm with all those healthful black currant concoctions, and likely Orchard Hill Breadworks as well. I’m sure others will be there too. Check our Facebook page -@brattleborowinterfarmersmarket – for updates.
So when you come to the market on Saturday, you will find a smaller version of us, and you will not find a terminal to run credit, debit or EBT card sales. Plan accordingly and be prepared with cash or check, or the tokens and coupons you already have on hand.
Yes, the Brattleboro Winter Farmers’ Market is open this week, Saturday 12/28…and every Saturday through March!
Stop in and wish a Happy New Year to your favorite market folks.

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.
The Brattleboro Farmers’ Market is seeking new vendors for its 2019 season. We’re particularly looking for prepared foods (breakfast/lunch) and cheese, but all applications are welcome in the areas of agriculture, prepared/specialty foods, and crafts.
We’re a producers-only market, which means all products must be grown or made by the applicant. Generally, vendors hail from Windham (VT) and Cheshire (NH) counties, but this year we can accept out-of-county prepared food and craft vendors on a one-year basis.
The Brattleboro Winter Farmers’ Market will open the 2018 season on Saturday, November 3, 2018 in a new location. Having outgrown the old location, the Winter Farmers’ Market is looking forward to welcoming market-goers to the C. F. Church Building at 80 Flat St. in downtown Brattleboro. This new location offers free, convenient parking, better accessibility, and a more spacious indoor space, promising a market that is easier to navigate for customers and vendors alike.
The Brattleboro Area Farmers’ Market is now accepting applications for new members to vend their products at the Saturday and/or midweek markets.

The market features over 50 diverse vendors from the local area and attracts thousands of visitors annually.
The Brattleboro Area Farmers’ Market is a not-for-profit membership organization and welcomes applications from those who grow and/or create their own high-quality products, especially those working with local ingredients/materials to bring variety to the market’s offerings.
