Vassar Winter Market

The Vassar Winter Market, sponsored by Winter Sun Farms, is bringing locally grown produce to the Vassar campus, even in the middle of winter. The monthly event, which, according to a recent article in The Miscellany News, “incorporate[s] a traditional farmers’ market with a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)-style food pick-up,” will next take place at the tail end of Vassar’s spring break, on Saturday, March 21, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Aula. The market features produce, bread, eggs, meats, maple syrup, cheese, and more — all from local farms. Ken Oldehoff, director of marketing and sustainability at the Retreat, told the Misc: “Getting people out in the dreaded depths of winter and interacting as a community has a great vibe to it. It is much more exciting than a summer market.”
