Roots Rising's teen-led farmers market runs year-round in downtown Pittsfield, on the common in summer and in the church next door in winter.
Roots Rising

Locally roasted coffee, native plants or gently herbed hand cream … the regular Pittsfield Farmers Market welcomes in farmers and artisans together, and even landscape designers. You may meet a collective of young farmers who plough by horse-power. You may sample sunwarm blackberries from an 18th-century tavern in the hilltowns.

The year-round market has now become the only teen-led market in the region. Roots Rising, a program that helps teens to work at farms and food pantries throughout the Berkshires, supports crews working on farms and the crew who runs the market in all seasons.

Their Market Crew is involved with all aspects of the market, Roots Rising says, including set up, vendor support, community outreach, activity programming, and implementing our food justice programs. Market Crew is a job opportunity for graduates of Roots Rising’s Farm Crews, where Pittsfield teens are hired to work on farms and in food pantries throughout the region.

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.
