You don’t have to wait till spring to get the goods. James and Irina Bertini started this agricultural center in late 2009 to allow more than 30 small growers and vendors to sell at an indoor market year-round. You can purchase on Thursday and Friday and meet the folks behind the food each Saturday, including farmers from Callicrate Beef, Kiowa Valley Organics, Altan Alma Organic Farm, Mini Moos, Windsor Dairy, and others. Don’t bypass the ready-to-eat fare—the hot arepas, empanadas, and samosas are sublime.
