Due to the popularity and success of the November markets, Berkshire Grown will present more than 75 regional farmers, food producers and artisan crafters to the Berkshires at the last Holiday Farmers’ Market of the season, scheduled for Williamstown and Great Barrington on December 18, the Saturday before Christmas.
The Great Barrington market will host additional wares including wool, pottery, candles, soap, lotions and herbals with new vendors Allium (Whippoorwill Farm chili + house-made cornbread for lunch), Jane Elsbach (wool), Ooma Tesoros (canned tomato sauce) and Leahey Farm (beef.) The Williamstown market will feature new products/vendors at the December 18 market including cordials from Bug Hill Farm, traditional dyeing, spinning and felting (plus a spinning demo) from Mountain Sea Wearables, handmade herbal soaps from Dancing Bare, gingerbread and canned goods from SoMA, glassware from Memphremagog Studios, award-winning sheep’s milk cheese from 3-Corner Field Farm, handmade bags from Erin Kaukus Design, floral designs by Lydia Mongiardo, jewelry from Luna Moth Designs plus Happenchance Farm and Tortured Orchard. Gramercy Bistro will offer samples from their pastry chef and take pre-orders for holiday desserts.
Many vendors will be offering items only available at this time of year or that have been created for these markets specifically. All vendors will feature locally grown, produced and crafted products.
Entertainment for the whole family will include live music at both venues and lunch items will be available for purchase. The Great Barrington market will feature a visit from Santa for the kids from 10:30 am – 11:30 am and the Williamstown market will highlight the Berkshire Chorale from 11 am – noon to ring in the holiday spirit.
