It sure is a bummer when the local farmers markets close up shop in the fall OH WAIT. Winter farm markets! Keep buying local even with the snow starts to come down at all sorts of winter markets located in the Hudson Valley and Catskills. Shoppers can still find winter veggies, baked goods, local beverages, crafts, etc.  The Department of Ag & Markets has a handy-dandy little webpage that divides up all the farmers’ markets by county and indicates operations dates (look for those marked “year round”). Double check before heading out to one. We don’t know how often they update their list. Here’s a few in the Upstater area:
