January at the Market

In the winter months of January and February the Market rests. It does not sleep or die it just relaxes.

Many varieties of apples will keep 5 months under simple cold storage, longer under controlled atmosphere (low oxygen) conditions. So the apple vendors are usually there unless, or until, they
sell out

The chickens keep laying eggs, so the egg vendors keep coming to the market

Ralph Snow is usually there with his maple syrup, but again this is the end of the season, so it depends on the yield last spring.

The real prize is fresh lettuce from Shannon Brines if the weather is not too cold. But you have to get there early.
