Winter farmers’ market receives royal welcome in Greenfield

The Greenfield farmers market will be back in two weeks

GREENFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Winter may still be weeks away, but the winter farmers’ market received a royal welcome in Franklin county today. 22News found shoppers waiting in line for their seasonal produce.

Here at the Four Corners School in Greenfield, Western Massachusetts farmers found a ready market for their season produce and other products. Customers have become accustomed to shopping year round since the introduction of the Greenfield farmers market almost ten years ago.

Vanessa Query, of Turners Falls, said “Carrots are good, coffee’s good, and kettle corn is good.”

“I’ve got the strange cabbages, the spinach and what else do I have? Get the mushroom” said Dore Firth, of Greenfield.

The sizable group of customers on this first day of the winter farmers market had to be please at the number of vendors.

Dawn Lepore, of Amherst, came with her bakery products. She had heard good things about the winter market in Greenfield. “I was looking for a home, I’m a new business and I just opened in February, and I wanted a home for the winter and a couple of markets to work in.”

The Greenfield farmers market will be back in two weeks and then once a month until it concludes for the season on March 4th.
