Pittsfield Farmers Market
July 16 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 9:00 am on Saturday, repeating until July 30, 2022
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 inspring, summer and fall and the crew who runs the market in all seasons. They are working toward building a food truck crew as well.
This Saturday, the first Berkshire Pride Parade will head through downtown to the Common, and the market will be at the center of activities and events in celebration of pride, with the Samba Trio performing from 10 a.m. to noon.
This week’s vendors will include …

D’s Island Food Truck
Holiday Brook Farm
Krissy’s La Chandelle

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.
