Fans of artisans and artichokes can rejoice now that homemade and homegrown products will finally be under the same roof, starting this Sunday.

The farmers markets that sets up on Sundays in front J.J. Byrne Park on Fifth Avenue will be moving indoors for the first time, joining the popular Makers Market through late May at the Old American Can Factory.

“We really had a big demand for the market to continue throughout the winter,” said Rebecca Pedinotti of Community Markets, which organizes the event. “And the Makers Market was here, so it just made sense to merge.”

Run by the sustainable-design company XO Projects, Makers Market features more than 40 artisans selling original pieces ranging from hand-painted stained glass to gourmet chocolates.

“Now our farmers will attract a whole different demographic thanks to the Makers,” said Pedinotti.

The event will kick off on Sunday, Jan 10 with a gala featuring live music, refreshments, and a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 11 am.

It’s the only place to get your homegrown potatoes and handmade pottery in the same place.

Indoor Farmers Market at the Old American Can Factory (232 Third St. at Third Avenue in Gowanus), Sundays beginning Jan. 10, 11 am–5 pm. Visit for info.

Oh, this is just excellent. I hate having to stand outside and freeze my tootsies off while buying fresh, organic produce. Jolly yummy!
