Farmers market season in Wichita ended earlier this month.

But the Old Town Farmers’ Market will never end. Its new manager has found it a spot for the winter, and it will officially reopen on Sunday.

The market, which traditionally runs April through October in the Old Town Farm and Art Plaza, will open a new indoor winter market at Distillery 244, a 7,000-square-foot venue at 244 N. Mosley in Old Town. The market will happen from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. most Sundays from November until mid-April, when it moves back outdoors.

The winter market, just like the summer market, will feature farmers selling their produce, but they’ll be cool-season crops like spinach, lettuce, radishes, microgreens, turnips, kohlrabi, beets, broccoli and cauliflower.
