    Hi icer -

    Yesterday, at the Copley farmers market they had loose carrots and beets.  I bought as much as I thought I will eat over the next month or so.  There is no comparison to the garbage they sell in supermarkets.  Fresh and local is so much better. Yesterday was the last market until May - sigh.

    Happy Thanksgiving icer.

    Salem Farmers Market goes through the end of December.

    Newburyport Farmers Market goes through early April; takes a break for a few weeks, then picks up again in June.

    I know there are some that go longer, but Salem and Newburyport are too far for me to go.  There's talk of putting a year round market in Boston.  In the meantime, I'll start going over to Russo's in Watertown.  They have good produce and an excellent cheese selection.  I usually buy my Christmas tree there, too. One stop shopping!

    Russo's is awesome.

    Closer to home, Somerville has a winter's farmers market.

    My idea of a Farmer's Market, is fresh produce brought in directly from the farm. So why would they keep open over the winter months, when the farms have been put to sleep and nothing is growing? - Pingo

    Who says nothing grows in New England in winter?

    Also, many greenhouses are open - fresh produce and flowers.

    The fishing season never ends. Newburyport sells a lot of fish over the winter.

    Artist vendors. Gifts.

    Pies with fall and winter fruit an vegetable fillings.

    Etc.
