The Winter Farmers’ Market kicks off its fifth season on Saturday, Jan. 4, with local chef Dustin Haberer of Nana Karen’s Cruisin Kitchen preparing recipes made from fresh, local market foods.
Haberer will be on-site from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. The event is free and open to the public.
Located in the Community Market building at 629 Craghead St., the winter farmers’ market will be open each Saturday through March from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. All dates are weather permitting.
Kenny Porzio, the program coordinator for Danville Parks and Recreation, said the winter market again offers 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.
The winter market will close at the end of March.
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.
