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.

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.

On a Saturday morning, you may find Cricket Creek Farm cheeses here and Crosswalk Coffee, the D’s Island Food Truck, Holiday Brook Farm with maple syrup and localy raised meats and vegetables, woodworkers, baked goods and many more …
