Noth­ing like a hot pizza on a cold day: the pop­u­lar Vermilion Bay-based The Black Oven food truck was on hand at the Ma­tiowski Win­ter Mar­ket on Satur­day, Feb. 10.

Peo­ple who miss the sum­mer Ma­tiowski Farmer’s Mar­ket Wed­nes­days got a fix to tide them over the win­ter weather this past week­end.

A Ma­tiowski spe­cial­ity mar­ket was held at the Lake of the Woods Dis­cov­ery Cen­tre on Satur­day, Feb. 10 with many of the lo­cal ven­dors, plus a food truck out­side.

Ma­tiowski Farmer’s Mar­ket and city spe­cial events co­or­di­na­tor He­lena Devins said that al­though there wasn’t as many peo­ple as there was at the De­cem­ber win­ter mar­ket, it was still a good turnout.
