Winter Farmers’ Market: Some Things Old, Some Things New

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.

Winter Farmers’ Market Makes Merry

Winter is here!

Well, not quite. It’s still fall.

But the Westport Farmers’ Market is moving from outdoors to inside. To celebrate, they’re throwing a party at their winter home: Gilbertie’s Herbs and Garden Center (7 Sylvan Road).

From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. this Saturday (November 17), everyone can enjoy lawn games, fairy house making and pumpkin bowling (?!). There’s live music, a giving tree, and a special giveaway.

Of course Farmers’ Market vendors — old and new — will be on hand.

Food trucks will offer a variety of eats. And Athletic Brewing Company will offer adult beverages.

Hey, it’s 5 p.m. somewhere.
