The market cuts back on it's hours in the winter, but does continue. We recently checked it out (but it is hard to get there between 10-1 since church starts at 10:30).
Most of the vendors at the winter market looked familiar from the normal summer/fall market. There was actually a lone produce stand still going, where Theo picked some Granny Smith apples he wanted. Several bakeries had wares as well (scones!), and there were two meat stands (though we don't buy any of their's since we get free meat from my father's barn). Pickles, pizza, herbs, and cheese were also available, as well as a small stall with one of my favorites types of food, Middle Eastern (we bought some Feta Bites).

All in all, while it is not going to be a place we go every week to get fresh produce, I do think the winter market holds enough of a selection to make it worth your time to go pick up a tasty breakfast or lunch and support the vendors who are willing to brave the cold. Even though it's not too cold here in Virginia.
