Keep Eating Locally in Winter - Indoor/Winter Farmer's Markets, etc. in Louisville, KY

Keep Eating Locally in Winter. Here’s how! (Remember to check your local farmer's market in your area, some of these have closed up shop till spring!)

 photo farm-1_zps07e1633b.jpgMany Farmer’s Markets move indoors for the winter. They have fewer fruits and vegetables and more meats, cheeses, eggs, and bread. Here’s a list of winter markets in the Louisville area:

Hikes Lane Farmer's Market at Wallitsch Garden Center (Saturdays starting Jan 11, 10am-1pm)
Douglas Loop Farmer’s Market                                                  Bardstown Road Farmer’s Market                                             
Lyndon Farmer’s Market  (thru Dec 19)
Louisville Winter Farmer’s Market 
Jeffersonville Winter Farmers Market, Saturdays, 9:30-12, Nov-May
New Albany Farmer’s Market 
Jeffersontown Indoor Winter Market at Jeffersontown Christian Church. They are open on select Saturdays 10am-1pm through April 2014.

There are several stores and distribution services for local produce. Most CSA programs end in November, but these places keep the local food market moving in the colder months:
The Root Cellar  has stores in Germantown and Old Louisville.
Green Bean Delivery  has multiple regional farm-to-table delivery services including Louisville and Southern Indiana.
New Roots partners with local places around the city to bring fresh produce to the communities they serve.
Louisville Farm to Table has some great information.

Get to know your local farmer by buying directly from the farm. Here are a couple of the larger farm stores:
Foxhollow Farm  offers a wide variety of meats, eggs, and produce from the farm.
Huber’s Market  offers seasonal produce and also has a bakery and ice cream shop.

Check out a Farm-To-Table restaurant. These places source as much as they can locally:
New Albanian Bank Street Brewhouse
Cake Flour
Taco Punk
Mayan Cafe
Ramsi's Cafe on the World
Cattleman's Roadhouse
The Exchange Pub & Kitchen
Anchorage Cafe
North End Cafe
Papalino's NY Pizzeria
