MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- A farmers' market in the heart of winter -- something many took advantage of on Saturday, January 3rd at Milwaukee County's Winter Farmers' Market.

It is the spot where small farmers can sustain their business during the dead of winter.

"I just love it. It's a little more relaxed, we can take our time explaining to people, there's no rush to get back to the farm and water plants, we just really focus on the end use," said Ted Ballweg.

Ted Ballweg with Savory Accents has kept local people fed for decades. But it's these customers at the winter farmers' market that keeps his business going.

"We wouldn't have any revenue. And many farmers use the winter off and use it for preparation for the spring but it's hard to do that when there's no revenue, there's no sales," said Ballweg.

There's a little something for everyone here, including your dog and the cheese lovers too!

Thousands enjoy the sights of the domes and tastes of locally grown goodness to share.

The Milwaukee County Winter Farmers' Market runs through April 11th.

It's located at the Mitchell Park Domes and is open every Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
