Just like normal, the Westport Winter Farmers’ Market opens soon. Of course, in a pandemic there are a few new twists.
The winter market begins Thursday, November 12 (10 a.m. to 2 p.m.). It runs every Thursday through March 11. That’s a change from the usual Saturday winter dates.
The open-air market will be held in 3 greenhouses at Gilbertie’s Herbs & Garden Center, on Sylvan Road South. Windows and doors will be open, and vendors will be spread out.
Over 35 vendors provide high-quality locally grown or raised fruits, vegetables, meats, cheeses, milk, baked and prepared foods, as well as handmade items.
At-risk shoppers can come between 1 and 2 p.m., when fewer people will be in the greenhouses.
Pre-ordering is available with many vendors too.
As always, the Westport Farmers’ Winter Market promises entertainment, kids’ activities, and a few surprises.
And of course, plenty of great, fresh seasonal food.
