Berkshire Grown kicks off its 2023-2024 indoor Winter Farmers Market season on the weekend before Thanksgiving in Great Barrington. The first in the season of six indoor Winter Farmers Markets will take place on Saturday, November 18 from 10:00am to 2:00pm at the Housy Dome (Housatonic Community Center). These markets will run every third Saturday of the month through April 20, 2024. The Housy Dome is located at 1064 Main Street in Housatonic and is included on the Berkshire Regional Transit Authority BRTA route #21.
All markets feature locally-grown and produced foods including fruits and vegetables, cheeses, meats, breads, and more including signature grilled sandwiches outdoors. Admission to the Winter Farmers Markets is free and food access is an integral part of the markets. Shoppers using SNAP will receive a match up to $30, and the HIP incentive reimburses shoppers who spend SNAP funds on fresh fruits and vegetables. SNAP and HIP can be processed at the market manager’s station, as well as at several farmers’ booths.
We are pleased to showcase local musicians, performing across a variety of styles and genres at all the markets this season.
