Winter farmers’ markets are popular shopping destinations in Fairfield County. And why not? We have four season farmers, food vendors who are dedicated to their craft throughout the seasons, and consumers eager to buy locally grown food even if it means braving winter weather. Winter farmers’ markets in Westport, Southport, and Monroe will run this season, all in indoor, heated venues.
