CitySeed’s Winter Farmers’ Market coming up in New Haven

NEW HAVEN - CitySeed’s third annual Winter Farmers’ Market will open for the season on Jan. 16 at Metropolitan Business Academy, 115 Water St. , according to a release.
The winter market will again be held indoors at Metropolitan from to 1 p.m.   and will continue through the end of March, the release said. 
CitySeed’s weekend markets return outdoors in April, a month earlier than usual, the release said
