WESTFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Drought are no drought, the Westfield Farmers’ Market has served the needs of Western Hampden County residents every Thursday. Each week, dozens of farmers sell their produce on the lawn of the episcopal church of the atonement on court street.
The lengthy drought has been an issue effecting some crops more than others. Rudy Musgersait, the owner of Rudy’s Greenhouse told 22News that the crops affected this year included “Tomatoes, peppers and pumpkins. Your pumpkins for instance they’re going to be smaller this year with the lack of rain.”
The Westfield Farmers’ Market, now in its fourth year, will conclude its season during early October.
