CLEVELAND - After the hustle and bustle of the holidays and worrying about everyone else but yourself it’s time to think about you again.
Get your pamper on at Pure Enchantment in Rocky River.
Owner Debbie Brink helps folks defeat winter dryness with her lotion bars.
“I get people that come in time and time again because it’s made right here,” said Brink.
Brink makes hundreds of lotion bars a week. All of them are made with natural ingredients. “Beeswax, Shea butter, we’ve got some liquid oils with avocado almond, jojoba,” said Brink.
Once the beeswax is melted, Brink adds Shea Butter, Vitamin E and fragrance, then it’s time to pour. What’s amazing is that the small batch Brink whips up will make 100 bars that go the distance.
“It lasts a really long time because you only need a little bit,” said Brink.
Farmer's markets during the winter months
From taking care of the outside of your body to the inside.
“You can do farmers markets in the wintertime at least once a week,” said Kevin Leamer, Farmer.
They’re usually a staple during the summer months, but now Farmers Markets are popping up as temperatures plummet.
“Great to be able to have fresh food year round, and now the markets are starting to catch up,” said Leamer.
This winter market is inside Cleveland’s 5th Street Arcade. “It has been an amazing space, as you can see it is beautiful to be in here,” said Ashley Shaw, Downtown Farmer’s Market Manager.
The farmers providing this produce use Hoop Houses, which allow them to grow certain veggies despite colder weather.
“Mainly in the winter time you are going to be getting more into the root crops. [We] have a lot of beets and carrots, turnips and rutabagas, scallions,” said Leamer.
The downtown Farmer’s Market is open every Friday from 11-2, all winter long.
“We have a lot of surprised people when they walk in the door every Friday,” said Shaw.
