Rain or shine, Westfield Farmers Market draws crowds

Market continues every Thursday through October 5

WESTFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – A little bit of rain was not enough to deter people in Westfield from stocking-up on local fruits and vegetables at the city’s thriving farmers market.

A healthy crowd turned out for the weekly market at the Church of the Atonement on Court Street.

The market was still held outside Thursday, but in the event of heavy rain, the event is brought indoors.

“All of the vendors had the option of moving inside today, but none of them chose to do that. It rains, that’s fine, people come out. I guess we’re doing the right thing,” market co-manager Peter Langmore said.

The popular Westfield Farmers Market continues its summer season until early October. Farmers and customers then move inside the church for the winter farmers market.
