The many joys of browsing and shopping farmers markets for fresh produce, cheese, eggs, meat and miscellaneous other foods and household items largely disappear this time of year.

A few places, however, bring a bit of summer to the winter season. The Elk Grove Farmers Market this year has added a Winter Market, which was open Saturday.

A steady stream of patrons could choose from items at about 20 vendor stalls inside and outside Christus Victor Church, 1045 S. Arlington Heights Road.

The market will operate from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the first and third Saturdays each month through April. Upcoming dates are Dec. 2 and 16, Jan. 6 and 20, Feb. 3 and 17, March 3 and 17, and April 7 and 21.
