On a sunny morning at the North Adams Farmers Market, you can sit at a picnic table with a long view over the mountains, near the farm and food community tent, and try out A-OK Barbeque and Tunnel City Coffee, or the K’s Creamery food truck with doughnuts and ice cream.

If you’re looking for a root beer float, or pierogi and Polish chicken skewers (shashlik), the market gathers hot and cold summer treats along with local greens and fruits, eggs and herbs.

You may find the 180 Polish Roadside Grill or North Yeast Bakery, or the Clarksburg Bread Company — beloved by a local following who have sought out baker Jamie Ott since she ran the Clarksburg Bakery in Williamstown 20 years ago and have never forgotton her peanut butter pillow cookies.

You may find breakfast sandwiches on fresh eggs — artisans, woodworkers and jewelers — and trail mix for and Senecal’s Sugarhouse from just over the line in Vermont to take along on your next hike up Mount Greylock.
