September 2022

As the Carmel Farmers Market (CFM) wraps up another fabulous summer market season, all of us at Carmel Monthly wanted to take a moment to thank the dedicated and selfless volunteers and dedicated vendors who make the summer market the exceptional and reputable market that it is!

Additionally, the CFM volunteers and winter vendors create an exceptional winter market that offers fresh and local produce and products beginning this November through March of 2023.

Enjoy “Fresh” All Winter Long

There is no better time of year to get creative and adventurous in your kitchen than in the winter months! If you have never frequented the Carmel Winter Market, you will be pleased to learn that you can still enjoy fresh produce and products from local farmers throughout the winter season.

You can get many of the same products that you get from the summer market, from fresh produce, French-inspired baked goods, meats and poultry to country-fresh eggs and small batch jams and jellies in a warm, cozy and somewhat funky setting at the market’s winter home, The Wire Factory (510 Third Avenue SW) in Carmel, Indiana.

From hoop houses and other [farming] innovations, CFM Winter Market vendors can produce fresh, local and straight out of Hoosier soil.

Need some creative and helpful tips on how to properly store and/or prepare your purchases from the Winter Market? Talk with the winter vendors about their products and favorite recipes, and be sure to ask them for tips on successful canning and cold storage methods.

Cold storage does not mean storing vegetables in a refrigerator but rather it refers to storing large quantities of just-harvested vegetables in cool environments such as cool, dry basements and/or root cellars.

Cold storage produce — such as apples, potatoes, onions, hydroponic and greenhouse greens and herbs, sustainably produced meat, dairy and egg products — and a plethora of locally produced and prepared foods are in abundance at the Winter Market, and with a few easy tips from the pros, you can prepare your pantry for this winter season and meal plan using fresh and local ingredients while supporting the local economy and local providers.

Please join us inside the Winter Market at 510 3rd Avenue SW every Saturday, 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. from October 15 through March 25.
