Public Markets are those year-round or seasonal, multi-vendor markets that primarily deal with locally grown produce. The public market merchants within tend to be independent owner-operators who are often, but not always, involved in the production of the products they sell. Please ensure that you visit public market websites for hours and season of operation. Some public markets are closed during the winter season.
