Winter is here but produce is still available at the market! There are a number of vegetables and fruits that, under proper conditions, store well. Farmers are also using high tunnels to grow greens such as kale, Swiss chard, spinach, arugula, lettuce, and celeriac so these items may be available in limited quantity. These vegetables and fruits can be used to make wonderful soups and delicious meals during the colder months. Here’s a look at the products you’ll most likely see this winter.

 
 

Apples

Beets

Cabbage

Carrots

Dry beans

Garlic

Kale

Mushrooms

Onions

Parsnips

Pears

Potatoes

Pumpkins and winter squash

Shallots

Sweet Potatoes

 
 

Don’t forget you can also always find plenty of baked goods, cheeses, meats, prepared foods and other fantastic locally produced foods and crafts!

 

Schenectady Greenmarket connects farm and city to create a responsible, sustainable food system–right in the heart of downtown Schenectady. Each Sunday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., vendors, shoppers, musicians and friends gather to purchase fresh local produce and artisan goods in a festive community marketplace. The Outdoor Market takes place from May through October around City Hall. The Winter Market takes place November through April inside Proctors. The market is a 501(c)3 non-profit run by a board of volunteers. Visit schenectadygreenmarket.org for weekly updates and information about vendors, special events, parking and more.
