Year-Round Farmers Markets in New York

One of the best things about living in an urban jungle is that you can go out and buy turnips and rutabagas in the middle of January. In fact, there’s a great deal of local produce available year-round in the city, thanks to our amazing network of farmers markets.

Some of the markets are seasonal and some are year-round. I’ve compiled a list of year-round markets for those hearty souls who want to purchase their produce outside, in freezing temperatures, in the middle of winter.

List after the jump.
