Winter Farmers Market Offers Food, Health Products, and Atmosphere

Winter got you feeling down? Come support your small, local businesses at this lively indoor market!

On Saturdays, head over to the Smith Vocational and Agricultural High School to enjoy and support local vendors.

The farmers market is open from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. and it hosts around 40 different businesses. Products include fresh produce, meats, cheeses, bread and pastries, herbs,honey, specialty foods and juices, and more artisanal goods.

Aside from locally grown and organically cultivated meat, cheese, bread, and produce, some vendors cater to specific needs.

Emily's Grain Free offers grain-free muffins and "Grain-free-ola" that are paleo-friendly. After being diagnosed with Crohn's Disease, owner, Emily Mekler, opted for eating healthy, rather than immediate surgery or being put on medication with potentially bad side effects. Within six years, she healed herself by eating clean. Her products are grain-free, gluten-free, refined-sugar free, and dairy-free, but not "taste-free," as she puts it.

The farmers market offers a wide array of handmade and carefully handled goods. For those not looking for food, the market also features local artists, clothes, soaps, and more.
