UW-L opens it’s door for Winter Farmer’s Market

Cameron Farmer's Market moves from outdoors to indoors

It’s getting colder outside, but that is not stopping local vendors from selling their products. 

The Winter Farmer’s Market held their first sale on Saturday.  Cameron Park vendors that traditionally sell during summer months moved to the indoors of the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse’s Cartwright Center. 

Twenty vendors sold products on the first day.  With colder weather hindering some food products, organizers of the market say they still have a lot to offer.

“Many of our vendors, their products are not necessarily dependent on weather because we have so many vendors that aren’t just doing produce and even our produce bendors still have winter storage vegetables and green houses so we’ll have greens and fresh things all the way through the end of the market,” said Cameron Park market manager Nell Saunders-Scott.

The Winter Farmer’s Market will stay open through the end of January, open every other Saturday.
