For the fourth consecutive year, the Danville Farmers’ Market, one of the River District’s long-standing traditions, will not be just for the spring and summer. Beginning Saturday, Jan. 5, the market reopens for the winter.
Located in the Community Market building at 629 Craghead St., the winter farmers’ market will be open each Saturday through March from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. All dates are weather permitting.
Kenny Porzio, program coordinator for Danville Parks and Recreation, said the winter market will offer favorites such as honey, meats, wine, baked goods, coffee, crafts and seasonal produce.
The winter market began at the request of vendors with year-round offerings. Those offerings included seasonal produce from vendors with greenhouses. The market proved to be a success, with both good vendor participation and customer traffic.
The winter market will close at the end of March.
The spring and summer farmers’ market operates every Saturday from May through October. In July and August, the market also is open on Wednesday afternoons.
