Salem’s Farmers’ Market is so successful and beloved that it has been extended as a Winter Market, happening on Thursday afternoons through December 22nd on Artists’ Row, behind the Old Town Hall. Once again Salem Main Streets provides us with another ongoing opportunity to shop for local, fresh, and unique goods.
So, instead of all sorts of vegetables, pulled straight from the earth, think cakes and pies pulled straight out of the oven, along with lots of fresh dairy products, preserves and crafts. Welcome Winter.
This Winter lithograph(1893), by English Arts and Crafts artist George Heywood Maunoir Sumner (from the collection of the Victoria & Albert Museum), would seem to be an appropriate image for this time of year, if it were a bit colder–but perhaps we should count our blessings.
