I knew about Rhinebeck Summer Farmers’ Market but it was only recently that I learned that there is also a winter market. Of course I had to visit, after all it is practically in my backyard. Sure glad I did. Though small there were an excellent and wide selection of produce, prepared foods, dairy products, fresh meats, eggs and more. All grown in the Hudson Valley.
The Rhinebeck Winter Farmers’ Market is open alternate Sundays, December – April, from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. at the Rhinebeck Town Hall, 80 East Market Street. Future dates are: 2/19, 3/4. 3/18, 4/1. 4/15 & 4/29.
Potatoes, there were purple potatoes, blue potatoes, red potatoes, yellow potatoes. I bought 3 different kinds of blue and 2 different kinds of red to use as seed potatoes.
Apples, so many varieties
Pea shoots, micro greens, napa ….. , the Little Seeds Garden.
and more poultry
Farm fresh eggs
Sure wished I had not eaten before going to the market
and more sauces
Pickles, Spacey Tracy’s Pickles
Bread and baked goods, Our Daily Bread
Cheeses, Amazing Live Food Co. The gruyere is excellent liked the moonlight too.
Apple cider, pear cider and apple/pear combo.
