Grow Food Northampton is hosting monthly farmers markets at the Northampton Senior Center this winter,…
Hello Market Friends!
Happy Summer! It’s been looking and feeling like it, and now the season is officially here. Kids are out of school, swimming spots are cooling us off and farmers’ markets and farm stands are filling up with local food. Participate fully in all this season has to offer, stop by Tuesday Market from 1:30-6:30!
Bare Roots Farm wraps up their 8-week run of selling plants this week. They still have a great selection. Take advantage of your last chance to bring some plants home!

Eric Lee will be returning to provide music for us. Eric bravely played for us on opening day when the temperature barely made it above 50 and it rained most of the time. His music is lovely and we’re happy to show him what a summer Tuesday Market is like!
On your marks… Get set… Read! Forbes Library will be at Tuesday Market promoting their 2016 Summer Reading Programs for children, teens, and adults. Register for a library card, and participate in multifaceted summer-long programming for the entire family.
The David Ruggles Center for Early Florence History and Underground Railroad Studies will join us this week to promote their museum and sell chances to win a homemade quilt. Learn about this local historical resource.
Help us to spread the word about the SNAP and Save Program which is allowing us to match $10 in SNAP money each week. That means that SNAP customers get $20 for their $10 withdrawal of SNAP benefits each week at the market (Thank you CISA and Healthy Hampshire!). SNAP tokens can be used for anything SNAP eligible, including meat, fruits, vegetables, honey, maple, cheese, bread, granola and plant starts. Stop by the purple market tent to learn more.
