    Great Neck’s Farmers Market has moved indoors for the winter. The Great Neck Indoor Winter Market is a collaborative project of Deep Roots Farmers Market and the Great Neck Park District. The market will continue to bring the Great Neck community fresh and local foods and crafts.

    The market provides a good variety of food products. Vendors offer the staples such as fresh fruits and vegetables, but other vendors offer more unique products such as organic juices, meats, fish, spices and coffee.

    “We are a food-focused market,” said the founder and owner of Deep Roots Farmers Market, Amy Peters,. “Everybody at the farmers market is a maker or grower. At least 80 to 90 percent of what [the vendors] are bringing is what they make or grow.”

    While the market’s primary focus is providing fresh and self-grown or prepared food products, occasionally artists come and sell jewelry, homemade soaps, candles and other accessories.

    The indoor market is located at the Great Neck House at 14 Arrandale Ave. The market will be open on Sundays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. thru March 26.
