Market in December?

Our garden is still producing...of course the cold hardy stuff like kale, arugala, mizuna and we pulled out some of our carrots the other day.  Because of this, we decided to continue with doing local farmers markets and have found an indoor market run out of the Waldorf School in Blockhouse, NS.  It is only about 30minutes from our place and you can visit http://winterfarmersmarket.org to learn  more about the market and what is offered.  It is every Saturday from 10-2 and  it is in a wonderful setting with a great group of people.  We participated this past Saturday and offered carrots, kale, cabbage and arugala for fresh foods as well as some parsley pesto, salad h'hiver ( a recipe of K's mom), and some soaps, lip balms and bath fizzers.  We also made up some Christmas wreaths which was a great learning experience and a whole industry here on the South Shore.  We forgot our camera at the market so no photos of the table, but some photos of harvest and the wreaths...
