Berkshire Grown began hosting the region’s only off-season farmers markets in 2009, when we organized the first Holiday Farmers Markets in response to the demand for more year-round access to locally-grown products. Community support has been tremendous and the markets have continued to grow annually. In 2015, the Great Barrington Markets expanded to include January and February dates, lengthening the season for farmers and shoppers alike. These markets provide an opportunity for residents and visitors throughout Berkshire County to access local foods and products in the winter months and have become an essential source of off-season income for Berkshire farmers.
All markets feature locally-grown and produced foods, live music, lunch fare, and activities for children. Admission is always free and SNAP benefits are available at all markets.
Berkshire Grown Holiday Farmers Markets are grower/producer only markets. Items you sell must be grown or produced by you. We welcome local produce, plants and flowers, locally-produced foods, farm-related products (such as yarns and sheepskins from local sheep, beeswax products, and personal care products). Crafts are required to be, in major part, locally made or assembled by the vendor. Preference is given to farms and food vendors. Vendor acceptance is at the discretion of the market manager, in order to best meet the needs of the market. Applications due October 13th.
The Winter Farmers Markets are made possible by support from these sponsors:
