MADISON, Wis. — With six months of Wisconsin’s cold and snow quickly approaching, some local farmers must transition from their fields to greenhouses and from outdoor farmers markets to small ones indoors.
“We still have a lot of work to do, digging up things and putting things to bed, mowing down things, cover crops, and getting ready for the spring. Ordering seeds and plants, I mean it just continues,” farmer Carol said.
While fields may soon be snow covered, farmers will continue to produce fresh fruits and vegetables throughout the next month. Farmers and shoppers alike benefit from the market’s extension into the winter.
“You can get the best spinach of the year is in the winter because it’s very sweet as opposed to the summer, which is good but different,” shopper Nancy said.
The indoor market will be held every Saturday until December 17th at the Monona Terrace.
