We opened in 2006 as a project of Post Oil Solutions, a nonprofit grassroots sustainability group in SE Vermont. Since then we have grown from a 2-month to a 5-month market serving the greater Brattleboro area and beyond. At our new C.F. Church Building location, the market is fully handicap accessible with plenty of on-site and nearby parking, more room for our vendors to display their wares, and a space for kids to hang out while their parents shop.
The Brattleboro Winter Farmers Market is the only weekly winter farmers market in Windham County and one of the oldest in Vermont.
Our market was founded to celebrate and support local farms, food producers, and artisans working together to strengthen the local economy and build community around year-round access to local food. At our market, you buy directly from the producer—the person who grew, raised, cooked or created it, and can tell you how best to use and enjoy it. Plus, your dollars contribute directly to the local economy and assure the future of a healthy regional food system while supporting local farmers through their lean season.
MORE THAN JUST A MARKET
The market is the warm welcoming place to be on cold Saturdays from November through March. Since 2006, we’ve been the community’s gathering place to get your weekly supplies, enjoy good local music, a bite to eat, and catch up with old friends or make new ones in our café.
LOVE IS IN THE AIR
The market is a labor of love for the community from our vendors and volunteers. And while we can’t promise you’ll get engaged here (like two couples have reported), we can promise you’ll come away feeling the love that goes into all the produce, food, and crafts at the Brattleboro Winter Farmers’ Market
