Winter market comes to Ronan
RONAN — Farmers market season doesn’t end with the good weather this year. Ronan will host a new winter market at the Boys and Girls Club gym on Sundays from Oct. 29 to Jan. 28, 2024 from 12-3 p.m. With added vendors, Winter Market Ronan will be a little larger than the summer markets.
“The winter market will be different since it won’t have the warmer weather products so there will be more crafts and other things that can either be made year-round or stay good for the winter months,” said Ronan Farmers Market board member Brianna Ewert.
Some of the new winter market vendors are David Sturman with Shady Maple Farms, Hope Dibbles - owner of Lonesome Heritage Farms and The Wagon Wheel and Michelle Walter, owner of Bubble Goat Soap.
With the next closest winter market in Missoula, Walter, a primary organizer of the event, is excited to offer a local option. “I hope it allows the community to stay a little more local and allows them to come together during the winter and enjoy some of the products you might not get to see during the summer,” she said.
Some of the market offerings planned include meats, lavender bundles, hand-sewn items, fine art/painting, stained glass, knives, baked goods, produce and more.
“You will have to come to the event to see everything the winter market has to offer,” Walter said.
