Light rain didn’t keep shoppers away from the first winter farmers market in downtown Tracy on Sixth Street and Central Avenue.

Vendors used heaters and awnings to stay warm and dry as they lined the northwest corner of the intersection and part of the parking lot with booths selling citrus, kale, celery, potatoes, garlic and other vegetables and fruit, along with baked goods, live plants and crafts.

The winter market will run from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. every Saturday through March, rain or shine, unless more severe weather prompts a closure. In April, the market will return to 10th Street for the summer and fall.
