It's easy to forget to eat your vegetables when the weather gets cold, but plenty of seasonal produce is still being sold at indoors farmer's markets across the metro. Most of the markets have hours on the weekends and will be selling meat, cheese and root vegetables -- the kinds that are perfect for roasting and making soups.

The Winter Farmer's Market of Grand Court (501 W. 107th Street) kicks off with open houses on November 7 and 14 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Here, you can get dairy products (cheese, kefir), nuts, local mushrooms, farm fresh eggs, honey and locally baked desserts.

The City Market has begun

its winter market with baked goods and produce vendors selling

on Saturdays (6 a.m. to 3 p.m.) and Sundays (8 a.m. to 3 p.m.).  

Bad Seed Farm

(1909 McGee Street) operates its winter market on Friday nights from 4

to 8 p.m., with local coffee from micro-roaster

Puddin' Head Coffee. Cups of coffee and hot cocoa are usually for sale along with produce (like beets, spinach and kale) from Platte Prairie and Root Deep Urban Farms. You can also get sheep's milk cheese from Green Dirt Farm and grass-fed beef from the Wells Family Farms.

With Thanksgiving coming up, you can put in a special order with the Squash Blossom Cooperative of Kansas City. There are organic chocolate chips, nuts, flour, beans, seeds and peanut butter -- every dry good you would need to stock your pantry. You have to submit your order by Thursday, November 12 for pick-up on Friday, November 20 at the Bad Seed location in the Crossroads.

And if you put on your sweater, you've still got two weekends to enjoy The Downtown Lawrence Farmer's Market, which runs on Saturdays from 7 to 11 a.m. through November 14.
