November not the end of local farmers market

November 9, 2010 at 2:17 pm

Normally, November marks the end of the local farmers market, except for the Green City Market, of course.

However, I can vouch that the Lincoln Square Farmers Market is still in business. I had to find out through a friend that the market had been extended. But I was happy to take advantage.

The weather this fall has lent itself to having an extension this year, but there is hope that the extension can be permanent.

Obviously, standing out in poor conditions isn’t desirable. The vendors who showed up during the windstorm a few Tuesdays back can relate.

Green City Market builds for this with a tent — a solution that isn’t practical for every location.

So should the markets build in a November option? Should it depend on the weather?

We should have these local markets open as long as it it viable for the vendors and consumers to show up.

    The 61st Street Farmer’s Market is still going. It has moved indoors at Experimental Station on Saturdays.
