Greensgrow Farms, Kensington’s agricultural oasis, announced today that they are fresh out of piney boughs and other holiday greenery and so will be closing earlier than anticipated for the season. Their regular hours will return in March 2011, when shoppers will once again because to buy local meat, dairy and veg, as well as all supplies necessary for their home gardens.
Those who can’t bear the idea of three months without Greensgrow can take heart. They will be hosting bi-monthly winter markets that will feature products from Natural Meadows Farms, Northport Fishington Cookie Factory, and Polish Goodness Pierogoes. There will also be some seasonal produce, though it will primarily be hardy root veggies and cold weather greens, as well as meats, eggs, and dairy products. These markets will take place on January 8 and 22, February 5 and 19, and March 5 and 19. These winter markets will be open 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
