Somerville residents and businesses love the fresh and local farmers’ markets in Union Square and Davis Square, mind June through November. Community members have been talking for a long time about the need for more fresh and local foods during the winter months, so the idea of a winter farmers’ market was born. Shape Up Somerville, local farmers and community stakeholders developed a business plan for the indoor market at the Armory space, and it will open this January!
Localvores should be sure to check out the array of produce, meat, bread and local specialty vendors at the new market. For the first time ever, residents will also be able to sample and purchase wine from Massachusetts farm wineries. The addition of farm wineries is made possible by some new statewide legislation enacted during the summer.
