Great Barrington Farmers Market
August 6 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 9:00 am on Saturday, repeating until August 27, 2022
Actors have been known to drop by and break into spontaneous performances here. Songwriters and storytellers perform for families who stroll and taste and talk with the people who grow the food and make it, and sometimes both.
This summer the Great Barrington market will run outdoors, just off Main Street on Saturdays, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. from May to October, with fruits and greens, herbs and oils, locally roasted coffee and brewed cider — popsicles, mushrooms, Berkshire Mountain Bakery sourdough bread, berries …
Local farmers bring newly laid eggs, blue cheese and aged cheddar. An artisanal charcuterie offers hand-crafted sausages. Hosta Hill sources local ingredients for crimson sauerkraut, and the Sweetish Baker may bring anything from savory tarts to chewy molasses cookies …
Farmers also bring cut flowers for bouquets and young plants early in summer for gardens and windowsills, and the fruits and vegetables and prepared foods change with the seasons.
By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
In the 2022 Festival of Contemporary Music, Tanglewood Music Center Fellows will perform a free chamber music concert with works by Carlos Simon and more.
