When I think of farmers markets, I imagine reclining on the grass in shorts and sandals, listening to live music and chomping on samosas. But even when the weather isn't picnic-blanket-worthy, families can still enjoy local bounty, mellow music, crafts, baked goods and international cuisine. 

Below is a sampling of farmers markets open for business through the winter months. Chomp away!

The Burlington Winter Farmers Market gets Memorial Auditorium bustling every other Saturday until the end of March. The next market is February 1.

Montpelier's Capital City Winter Farmers Market takes place two Saturdays a month through April at Vermont College of Fine Arts. The next one is February 8. 

The Norwich Winter Farmers Market runs on the second and fourth Saturday of each month through April at Tracy Hall.

The Rutland Winter Farmers Market hosts more than 50 vendors every Saturday until May 3 at the Vermont Farmers Food Center. 

The Middlebury Winter Farmers Market happens every Saturday in March and April at Mary Hogan School.
