Outdoor farmers market season ends

The city’s weekly outdoor farmers market season at the Spence Farm comes to a close on Sunday, but residents will not have to wait long to shop for fresh produce and other locally produced goods. Woburn’s winter farmers market starts its season Nov. 17. From then until next May, the market will be open every other Sunday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. inside the farm building, offering items ranging from winter squash and pumpkins to locally raised meats, foods prepared with local ingredients, and handmade crafts. The Agricultural Committee, which runs the markets, is seeking vendors for the indoor season. Jones Farm of Chelmsford, a favorite of the summer market, has committed to participating in the winter market, according to Paul Medeiros, the committee chairman. Meanwhile, on Sunday’s concluding day of the outdoor market, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., a harvest festival will be held on the farm, with live music, a bouncy house, $1 hot dogs, hamburgers, potato chips, pumpkin decorating, hayrides, and a petting zoo. Next Sunday, the office of Mayor Scott D. Galvin is sponsoring a special shredding day at the farm. Residents are invited to bring their papers to be shredded at no cost.
