So with the little thaw we had, and Mother Nature tricking me into wishing for spring, I did a quick search and found something to do about it.
The Winter Market.
I felt better as soon as we got there, haha!
It's in a beautiful historic building.
The farmer's booths line the hall with all the little shops and studios open behind them.
first stop, this table!
We got some wonderful Smoked Gouda here.
And what's this?
Aha! My new go-to gift shop.

We got some giant carrots for the kids to munch on and cruised (okay, squeezed, this place was packed!) up and back down the very long stretch of vendors. Then we plopped down in a side room and listened to this guy and his friends play some folksy stuff and the kids got to dance. a lot of little kids were dancing, they're were parent's strewn all over the floor!
This time of year it was mostly prepared goods like jams, breads, coffee, teas, bath goods, and the like but there were plenty of squash, apples, carrots, potatoes, onions and garlic. Every booth had garlic!
Aside from the incredible crowds in the main hall, it was perfect. We left with one carrot ( my little rabbits ate the others...) garlic, pickles, a baguette, and four heads of garlic. I can't wait to get back. More, I can't wait for summer and a market happening somewhere every day of the week!
