Hooray, it's 45 degrees and miserable today! Luckily, there's something summery to look forward to tomorrow: The first ever winter market from Portland Farmer's Market.

As the market announced in October, this January 6th will kick off an every-Saturday market at Shemanski Park (in the South Park Blocks), where from 10am to 2pm 35 vendors will sell seasonal veggies and all sorts wintery things like hot soup. There will also be a covered area with heaters, for people who enjoy not freezing while they shop. Yay for local food all year long!

UPDATE: People are noting on Twitter that there's a couple other farmer's markets that run during the winter in Portland, though they're not markets run by Portland Farmer's Market, which is the nonprofit that runs the bigger farmers markets in town. Portland Farmer's Market runs six markets and there are nearly 40 other markets, including year-round ones at People's Co-op and up in Hillsdale.
