For those who think farmers' markets are just for the summer months, think again.

At the Hyde Community Center in Newton, farmers, fishermen, and artisans are continuing to sell their goods throughout the winter at the Newton Indoor Farmers Market.

For the first time, residents and visitors can get fresh vegetables, meats, cheeses, herbs, and more from vendors like Boston Sword and Tuna, Freitas Farm in Middleborough, Turtle Creek Winery in Lincoln, The Warren Farm and Sugarhouse in North Brookfield, and El Recreo Estate Coffee, which sells coffee and beans from Nicaragua, despite the cold temperatures.

Folks can also taste homemade fruit pops from Culinary Cruisers in Somerville and learn about sustainability and the environment from the Green Decade/Newton.

The farmers market is held every Tuesday through June 18, 2013, from 1:30 to 6 p.m. at the Hyde Community Center, 90 Lincoln St. in Newton Highlands.

For more information about the farmers' market and what it offers, check out the video above, produced by participant Velma's Wicked Delicious Kettle Corn.
