Mid-afternoon sunsets, buskers caroling, and onslaughts of the dreaded “wintry mix” can only mean one thing: it’s the most wonderful time of the year, even for lovers of fresh, local produce and open-air farmers markets. A year-round operation, Findlay Market’s got you covered—literally—with The Shed, now equipped for the more ornery months of the year with inclement weather side-panels.
Shoppers will find plenty of fresh root vegetables like potatoes, carrots, radishes, and turnips. Limited leafy greens will be available from week to week. Stalwarts like squash, onions, and cabbage will likewise help customers cover more than just the basics. Hens are still laying eggs, and pasture raised beef, pork, and lamb are still available by request at various farmers’ stands. Don’t forget to stock up on apples, apple cider, and apple butter throughout the holiday season!
Uniquely festive wreaths by Wildey Flower Farm, barrel-aged maple syrups from Burton’s Maplewood Farm, baked goods that go the extra mile by rose&mary, artisan soaps from Linda’s Luxuries and Maumee World Traders, and Daniel’s Dog Treats that are good enough for a human to eat, all continue to line the interior of the shed with our fantastic farmers. Throughout the season, expect a steady stream of our traditional Elder St. vendors joining in on the protective-plastic-curtain-fun: Soul Sidekick, soHza, and Geiger Harness & Tack will lead the migration into the shed, now through the new year.
