The Brattleboro Winter Farmers Market opens for its 18th season on Saturday, November 4, 2023 once again in the Croker Hall gymnasium on the Winston Prouty Campus. As always, the indoor market season begins on the first Saturday in November following the last outdoor summer market in October. Fans of the famous summer Brattleboro Area Farmers’ Market in West Brattleboro can simply follow many of their favorite vendors indoors to the only weekly indoor winter farmers market in the region open every Saturday, 10 – 2, November through March.
Visitors will find plenty of farms and local produce at the Winter Farmers Market. This great location provides easy convenient parking and a spacious market where we can adequately serve both our vendors and customers. Most weeks, market visitors will find over 2 dozen vendors, including many favorites from past seasons and some new faces as well, offering fresh produce, syrup, local meats, eggs, cheese and other farm products, as well as bread, yummy treats, great lunches, preserves, beautiful handmade gifts and live local music.
The Brattleboro Winter Farmers Market welcomes SNAP/EBT shoppers, and can process credit and debit cards as well. SNAP customers can turn $10 into $30 each week with Crop Cash Coupons thanks to NOFA-VT with funding from the USDA, and our own Boost Your Bread coupons thanks to Post Oil Solutions, the Vermont Foodbank, and other funding sources.
According to the Farmers Market Coalition, a nonprofit dedicated to strengthening farmers markets across the country, the impact of direct farmer-to-consumer transactions at a market is greater than it might appear on the surface. Markets serve as community anchors, positively influencing community health and wealth, resulting in more viable regional economies, increased access to fresh, nutritious food, and stronger social networks that help keep communities healthy. Shopping at the Brattleboro Winter Farmers Market contributes to preserving rural livelihoods, and helps to keep land in diversified production making a huge difference to our local economy.
