The Downtown Eau Claire Farmers Market is still busy even after it’s summer season. The farmers market offers vegetables, meats and fruits in season year round. Deidra Barrickman, the market manager of the farmers market said that she sees how the market can bring the Eau Claire community together. The indoor farmers market offers produce for low income families who are on the SNAP program according to Barrickman. The winter market happens once a month and the dates can be found on their website.
