Ramsey Farmer’s Winter Market
From the Suburban News by Allison Pries:
“The Ramsey Farmer’s Market is extending its season by moving indoors for the winter.
Beginning Dec. 4, about two dozen vendors will sell fruits, vegetables and specialty products in the Eric S. Smith Middle School cafeteria.
“We’ll be the only community-based farmer’s market that’s indoors,” said Nancy Boone, the market’s founder and manager.
The outside market, which sets up every Sunday at the Main Street train station, will end Nov. 20.
The Ramsey Farmer’s Market is in its second season and typically has about 30 vendors, Boone said.
Space constraints and the limited availability of vendors during the winter will make the indoor market slightly smaller.
In addition to food, the market has special events such as children’s activities and periodically a corner where artists and crafters bring their wares.
The market also hosts a weekly food drive. Customers are asked to bring non-perishable foods and many farmers donate fresh produce at the end of the day that is delivered to the Center for Food Action. That collection will continue during the winter.
The indoor market will run Sundays through March 25 (with the exception of Dec. 25, Jan. 1 and Feb. 19) and be open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Eric S. Smith Middle School is at 73 Monroe St. in Ramsey. For more information about the market visit ramseyfarmersmarket.org“
