Grow Food Northampton is hosting monthly farmers markets at the Northampton Senior Center this winter,…
Hi Tuesday Market Friends!
I hope you’ve been staying cool during these hot summer days! The sky has been giving us lots of entertainment…rainbows and lightning shows. We’re all hoping for some much needed rain from the sky later today. The crew at Old Friends Farm is trying some alternative methods!

This week we will have everything on your list, plus some surprises to be sure. In addition to our regular vendors, we will welcome Botanica Bitters and Crooked Stick Pops. A perfect day for a popsicle at market and some bitters to bring home for a refreshing cool drink! Apex Orchard will also be making a special visit to market this week with blueberries!
Anchor Goods from Pieropan Tree Farm from Ashfield will be bringing their handmade cooking utensils and other everyday items to market. Beautiful and useful.
Eric Lee will be returning to play music for us this week. Check out a taste here:
Hannah Jacobson-Hardy of Sweet Birch Herbals is proud to announce that Full Moon Ghee will be available in local stores by August! To get the best price for a jar, come by the market where you can have a taste and learn about the benefits of cooking with ghee. Full Moon Ghee is made in small batches every month during the full moon from local High Lawn Farm butter. Sweet Birch is at the market every Tuesday.
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 a $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.
