Williamstown 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
Duck egg tacos with hot sausage and greens? Baklava and fresh moussaka? The Williamstown Farmers Market is growing. Farmers, food producers, artists and artisans will gather in the expanded parking lot at the end of Spring Street from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. every Saturday from mid-May to mid-October.
A group of 30 or more vendors come regularly to the market, says market manager and potter Anne Hogeland. Farmers offer greens and herbs, cheese and eggs, honey and relishes. The market varies with season, she explains, and some farmers come and go as their crops ripen, so you may find asparagus and strawberries early in the season and blueberries, peaches, plums and apples later in the summer.
Artisans will bring handmade work, anything from wooden bowls to ukuleles. And around the conversations and flavors, acoustic musicians will perform live — folk, fiddle, banjo, percussion, with performers like Williams College alum Lucy Rollins, who farms with Brian Cole at Bigfoot Farm, one of the newer farms in town. And Bigfoot will be at the market with salad greens, tatsoi, mizuna, spinach, kale and radishes.
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.
