Grow Food Northampton is hosting monthly farmers markets at the Northampton Senior Center this winter,…
Hey Market Friends —
Last Tuesday Market of the season! Come gather goods for your Thanksgiving table and your holidays. Come wish us all restful winters of planning for next year. Come use up your Tuesday Market tokens before you lose them in your piles of things. Come get some bulk bags of carrots, onions, potatoes, ginger, apples, etc… to store up. Or a gallon of maple syrup or a couple pounds of honey or meat for your freezer or beans for your pantry.
Gluten Free Bakery will be back for one last time with their biscotti and tea cakes and bread. Bug Hill will be back one last time with gift boxes and wild Massachusetts cranberries (yum!). Mycoterra will be there with their beautiful mushrooms.
Thanks for coming to market all season long. We’ll be back in late April ready to feed you.
And although they aren’t on Tuesdays, our TWO (we are so lucky!) great weekly winter farmers markets will start up soon.
Here are the details.

Finally, there were a great many new things at market this season that made us excited.
Red Fire Farm joined the market.
Two new bakeries, Tart and Gluten Free Bakery, brought popular, delicious baked goods of all kinds.
Beets and Barley brought yummy noodles and salads and cookies.
Rentas Family Farmers from Nuestras Raices Farm in Holyoke joined the market.
We made a stage that also happens to transport all market supplies.
With the help of many, we started a bagshare program.
What will happen next?
See you tomorrow for the warmest day of the week.
