For the third 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. 6, the market reopens for the winter.

Located in the Community Market building at 629 Craghead St., the farmers’ market will be open 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.

Porzio said pets will not be allowed at the farmers’ market this year due to a change in state regulations.

The winter market will close on Saturday, March 17.

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.
