Farmer’s Market Celebrates Winter Festival

Winter can be a slow time for many farmers, but Saturday, the South Bend Farmer's Market was bustling.

Winter Festival has been going on all week.

The festival features the usual produce vendors, antique dealers, and arts and crafts makers.

Some regular attendees say Winter Festival is a way to keep a South Bend tradition going strong all year long.

"It gives us a chance to see good people and old friends," says Greg Leyes, Ginger Valley Vendor. "I've come to the market since I was five-years old so it’s kind of nice for me to be here right now.”

Produce growers tell us, despite the week's fun, they are counting down the days until spring.

In case you are wondering, spring is just 39 days away.
