That's why we call 'em Winter Markets
First things first, there will be no complaining about the weather -- snow, sleet, rain or shine. As of now, Saturday's forecast is actually quite nice, viewed within the context of the brutal cold and occasionally icy days we've had in recent weeks. Along with our market, there's a particuarly important petition drive (more on that below) taking place across the street at the Lansdowne Theater. So no excuses -- get out and enjoy a bustling Saturday morning on Lansdowne Avenue. Here's who's coming to this Saturday's market, taking place from 9 am to 11 am in the usual market location at 30 N. Lansdowne Avenue.
- Amazing Acres Goat Dairy: Assorted delicious goat cheeses.
- Bonnies Wondergardens: Flowers (conditions permitting), pussy willow, odds and ends.
- Livengood Family Farm: Eggs, beef, pork, chicken and lamb. Special orders can be reserved by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.

- Taste of Puebla: Guacamole, pico de gallo, salsa fresca, corn chips, pork and chicken tamales, and (new!) chipotle hummus.
- Creative Shepherd Farm: Tropical marmalades, salsa, roasted organic coffee, and plenty of cheese. Also, some artisan handicrafts and hopefully a few winter veggies.
- Vera Pasta: Traditional homemade fresh pasta and sauces.
