These are 9 markets that are open during the winter months
Markets are always a popular and interesting place to go. Although in our winter there are not as many as in summer, I prefer the winter ones as it is not hot. Of course in winter there is a chance it will rain, however, I have more energy in rain than I do when our temperatures climb very high!
