Trader’s Point Creamery in
, is one of the few places that I know of in our area that has a Winter Market from November to April. During these cold winter months when most farmer’s markets are closed for the season, Trader’s Point Creamery converts their big red barn into a heated pavilion filled with all sorts of venders promoting fresh, local ingredients. The creamery is also home of The Loft Restaurant where only the freshest organic ingredients are used for the preparation of food. If dining in isn’t something you have time for, they sell all of their organic dairy products on sight as well as off sight in some of our local grocery stores. Zionsville, Indiana
Since the location of the creamery is located on the opposite side of town from where I live, I don’t make a weekly trip to visit their farmer’s market. I do, however, make one special trip to the creamery during the month of December. On the second and third Saturday of December, Trader’s Point Creamery has Christmas on the Farm. On these two days of the year, the creamery hosts a free event that incorporates their usual winter market with all sorts of other family-friendly activities such as: winter hayrides, reindeer, a visit with Santa Claus and Christmas crafts. Matt and I have taken the girls that I nanny for to Christmas on the farm for a couple of years now, and the girls really enjoy seeing the animals and purchasing a cup of fresh organic hot chocolate from the farm's Loft Restaraunt. Yesterday was the last day for this free event, but it is an annual event. So, if you’re looking for something fun and unique to do next December, make a trip to Trader’s Point Creamery for Christmas on the Farm.
