Farmers Market Saturday
The Lansdowne Farmers Market's 2016-17 Winter season kicks off this Saturday with the first of five monthly appearances. Winter Market hours have been pushed back this year (the two-hour market now takes place from 10 am to noon) so you don't have to be such an early riser, but it's still a good idea to be there early so you don't miss out. Remember, Winter Markets are all-weather events! Additional markets are scheduled for January 21, February 18, March 18, and April 15 -- here's who we're expecting this week:

  • Amazing Acres Goat Dairy: Fresh goat cheeses, including chipotle chevre, crottin, bucheron and more; 2017 Amazing Acres calendars chock full of goats and goat-cheese recipes
  • Bonnie's Wondergardens: All you need for Christmas -- fresh greenery, branches, twigs, flowers, eucalyptus, holly, and unique holiday arrangements
  • The Cottage Kitchen: Beets, curtido, kimchi, and kraut; beet kvass and more
  • Creative Shepherd Farm: Cheese, farm baskets, jam and salsa, maple syrup, garlic and winter squash, cannoli, and holiday handicrafts including textiles, bead work and handmade nativities and Christmas tree ornaments
  • Green Zebra Farm: Kale, carrots, cut spinach, winter squash, and tomato sauce
  • Kia's Cakes: Whole cakes, edible gifts, cookies, cupcakes and more
  • Kiss My Soul Naturals: Soaps, including seasonal favorites (cinnamon seed, winter peppermint, frankincense, and myrrh); soy candles, including new holiday scents (egg nog, gingerbread cake, and candy cane); scents, body scrubs, lotions, aromatherapeutic bath salts and bath bombs
  • Mitchell and Mitchell Wines
  • Paradocx Vineyard
  • Rebecca's Dumplings
  • Taste of Puebla: Guacamole, pico de gallo, salsa fresca, corn chips, tamales (pork, chicken and vegan), and pozole verde -- a traditional mexican stew featuring a combination of shredded chicken, pulled pork, white corn, and oregano cooked in green salsa
  • Wilsons Curiously Good Foods: Soups, chilies, possets, pots de crème and more

Are you a Biker, Hiker, or Casual Stroller?
