In the old days, the last farmers market of the season meant no or little eaccess to all the goodies those markets held.

But these days, once the outdoor markets shut down indoor versions begin. True, there aren’t as many and some are not as often, but we’ve still got some options. They include:

Glenwood Sunday Market. It’ll be in operation from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. once a month starting this Sunday (Nov. 8) at the Glenwood Bar, 6962 N. Glenwood.  Mark down the future dates: Dec. 13, Jan. 10, Feb. 14, March 13, April 10 and May 15.

Green City Market. It moves to the Peggy Notebaert Museum, 2430 N. Cannon Dr. and you can shop between 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. This month on Saturdays it will be operating this Saturday (Nov. 7), Nov. 14 and Nov. 21. And for your Thanksgiving meal supplies, it’ll be open the Wednesday before (Nov. 25) Turkey Day.
