Winter Farmers’ Market held in Greenfield


GREENFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – The enthusiasm for Greenfield’s three day Winter Carnival spilled over into the Winter Farmers’ Market at Greenfield High School.

The large enthusiastic crowd seemed anxious to buy what western Massachusetts growers have to offer.

“It’s great to come to one in the wintertime, we love the festive atmosphere, and we love getting local food to be bought locally,” said Sara Penn-Scrah of Greenfield.

The crowd appeared to be one of the largest since this Franklin County town began hosting farmers markets in wintertime.

Jon Ross of Deerfield found the selection very much to his liking.

“I like the winter markets, they have a lot of interesting stuff, because there’s less harvest this makes for a lot of workshops. I took one last week that was about sprouting,” said Jon Ross of Deerfield.

Many visitors made purchases which encourages future winter markets here in Western Massachusetts.

This was the second in Greenfield this winter and they’ve already set aside a Saturday in March at the high school.

Farmers have told 22News this is an excellent opportunity to bring their winter harvests to what’s apparently a public eager to support nearby farmers.
