The chard glows like stained glass, and the carrots are sweet and earthy and deep oranges and translucent purple. Last summer’s harvest is bottled in raspberry shrub and flamingo-pink sauerkraut. Even in midwinter you can find a farmers market or a food market serving locally grown fare.
- From May to October, farmers markets crop up in most Berkshire towns. Williamstown and North Adams host theirs on Saturday mornings with live music, crafts, pastries and prepared foods.
- Even in the cold, North Adams, Pittsfield and Bennington farmers markets run monthly, and Berkshire Grown holds holiday markets in Williamstown before Thanksgiving and Christmas.
- Farm markets like Cricket Creek and food markets like the Wild Oats Co-op and the Store at Five Corners offer local meats and cheeses, condiments and baked goods.
One of the few year-round farmers’ markets in the area featuring fresh greens, root veggies, baked goods, dairy products, meats, crafts, music and more.
You can find locally made, grown and roasted fare year-round from Assembly Coffee Roasters to Balderdash Cellars, Cricket Creek Farm, Mountain Girl Farm, Smokey Divas, Square Roots Farm and more.
Stroll, snack, and shop local at the Williamstown Farmers Market every Saturday 9am-1pm from May to October at the Spring Street Parking Lot.
