Berkshire Grown’s Holiday Market Is This Sunday
Berkshire Grown's Holiday Farmers Market will be held this Sunday, Nov. 18 from 10 A.M. to 2 P.M.
This popular event has been held for the last few years on the weekend just before Thanksgiving and again before the Christmas holiday to give local shoppers a chance to pick up fresh local food and other products for their holiday table. This year's Thanksgiving Holiday Market will be in a new location: Williamstown Elementary School at 115 Church St.
If you don't mind driving a bit, there will also be one this Saturday from 10-2 at Monument Valley Regional Middle School in Great Barrington.
You'll find locally grown fruits and vegetables, as well as meats, cheeses, bread and more. Local crafters will be there too. You can grab a bit of lunch, enjoy some live music while you shop, and catch up with friends and farmers. There will be fun for the kids too, so bring them along. Admission is free and SNAP/EBT customers are most welcome at all Berkshire Grown markets.
Margaret Moulton, Berkshire Grown's new executive director, said: “What is wonderful is that every dollar shoppers spend at a farmers market grows the local food economy, puts money directly into a farmer’s pocket, and keeps the Berkshires the pastoral place we love."
And be sure to put the next Berkshire Grown Holiday Farmers Market on your calendar for Sunday, December 16 from 10-2, as the market will move to the big red barn at Sweetwood of Williamstown, 1611 Cold Spring Road.
