OXFORD WINTER  FARMERS​' MARKET

First Saturdays of the Month | November 2018 - April 2019
St. Paul's Community Center, 32 Main Street, Oxford, NY 

JOIN US ON FEBRUARY 2  FOR OUR 
5th ANNUAL  COMMUNITY SEED SWAP




















































































Look to the Oxford Winter Farmers’ Market for all things local.
It's where we feed ourselves and our community. 

And be sure to mark your calendar for our final 2019 Winter Market on April 6th
When we'll be celebrating all things spring at the Oxford Maple Festival ​​!

One of the pleasures of these bitterly-cold cooped-up winter days is the time they afford to plan for the warmer months ahead when the soil thaws and is again ready to plant. 

Similarly, in these weeks between the February and March Markets, we put away our New Years hats, give our beloveds chocolate kisses, and get down to planning for our Annual Community Seed Swap. We collect our extra and extra-special seed catalogues and the articles we’ve clipped through the past year that offer new or newly-inspiring planting advice. We pull down the dog-eared copies of our gardening books. And we take the time — while the world outside is still blanketed in snow — to plan our gardens and set aside the surplus seed we can share with others.

It’s inevitable that we all buy and save more seed than we can possibly plant. Seed swaps are a way to insure that the seeds we don’t have room or time enough to plant find fertile soil in others gardens. On Saturday, March 2nd, you can bring your extra seeds to the Community Seed Swap Table and swap them — along with stories and good advice — for those seeds brought by others. We will have packets, labels and supplies available, as well as seed catalogs to peruse and books pertaining to organic gardening, composting, and wild foraging. And don’t worry if you don’t have seeds to swap. We always have more than enough. Swing by the table for free seed packets, and take home something new, unusual, and hardy to our region to plant in your garden.

The chefs from the Bohemian Moon & La Maison Blanche will be preparing another delicious “Local Lunch”, served up at the community table where friendships, new and old are made and nurtured.
