Berkshire Grown Winter Farmers Markets 2023-2024 are happening!

In Great Barrington, the six indoor Winter Farmers Markets take place on the thrird Saturday of the month, November 2023-April 2024, from 10:00am to 2:00pm at the Housy Dome (Housatonic Community Center).  The Housy Dome is located at 1064 Main Street in Housatonic and is included on the Berkshire Regional Transit Authority BRTA route #21.

In North County, Winter Farmers Market took place at Greylock WORKS in North Adams on Sunday, November 19 and Sunday, December 17, 2023. Berkshire Grown partnered with host Greylock WORKS and offered a mini maker market within the Winter Farmers Market, featuring a carefully curated gathering of local artisans.

Both market locations showcase local musicians, performing across a variety of styles and genres.

Executive Director Margaret Moulton says “we look forward to bringing back some of the ‘extras’ that add sparkle to the markets including live music and the locally-produced, artisan crafts at both markets, especially the mini maker market in North Adams. Raising our SNAP match to $30, thanks to BAV’s Market Match program, is another highlight of the upcoming season.”

The Winter Farmers Markets host farmers and producers from Berkshire County and the surrounding region. Vendors offer an abundance of locally-grown food, including fresh greens, winter squash, root crops, apples, meats, cheeses, honey and maple syrup, baked goods, and more.

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.

Berkshire Grown abides by current local health regulations regarding COVID-19. Masks are welcomed but not required, and shoppers are encouraged to stay home if they feel ill.
