One true delight in the winter months is being able to visit Lincoln Square Mall for Urbana's Market IN the Square each Satuday morning from November to April. Organizer Urbana Business Association feels that at this time their efforts are better spent "help[ing] small businesses and [are] currently looking into online promotion and sales campaign during the winter for vendors interested."
It's a bummer for us, the consumers, but also for vendors. We'll keep an eye out for any market vendors offering winter buying options.
