Tomorrow is the last Market day in June-it’s crazy how fast time has gone! Last week, Peterman’s Bowls came for their first time at the Market, with their hand-turned wooden pieces made out of locally fallen trees. The pieces were absolutely gorgeous, and we’re lucky to have Peterman’s come to the Market once a month! Make sure to be signed up for our newsletter to know what to expect at future Markets!

Tomorrow will be our third market of the season, so expect to recognize our usual vendors as well as meet a few new ones! Just a quick reminder that some of our vendors will be joining us every week, some will join every other week, and others will be making special appearances throughout the season. We will do our best to let you know what you can expect to find at each market, so be sure to be signed up for our newsletter and like our Facebook page for updates!
This week’s market will be quite eventful with the Sun Kim Bop food truck parked along the edge of the green, a music performance by Paper City Exile, as well as a visit from the Food Bank of Western MA to introduce SNAP.

Last week was our opening day, and it was a success! The weather was cool and breezy, while the fresh foods and specialty items were beyond beautiful. As Ann O’Roark, the new Market Manager, said of the first market day, “The experience of the people, the music, the produce, foods and crafted items was better than I even imagined. I am thrilled to be a part of it all!”
It was great to see everyone walk around the market with smiles on their faces.
This week, we’ll have some returning vendors as well as new ones. Some of our vendors will be joining us every week, some will join other week, and others will be making special appearances throughout the season. We’ll keep you updated through the newsletter, our Facebook, as well as this website.
