Check out the Winter Farmer's Market in Saline

I walked down to the Winter Farmer's Market in Saline this morning.

It certainly was cold, perhaps only in the mid-twenties, but the stroll from the Reporter only took about five minutes to get over to where the market is housed next to HSA.

City council member David Rhoads helped organize the endeavor, which is taking place for the first time this year. Rhoads said vendors from the ever-popular summer market were really wanting a place to sell their veggies for a few additional months.

He had renters move out of the building next door to his home remodeling business, and because he owns the space, Rhoads committed the location through December for use as a market.

There are some great late-season vegetables still available, such as potatoes and squash, as well as some great holiday gifts and crafts.

Check it out next Saturday from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. at 199 W. Michigan Ave.

Perhaps the best part is that you can get your produce and not have to face the elements.
