The Return of the Farmers’ Markets 2014

Farmers Market HudsonIt seems as if a little sunshine was all that was needed to restore our landscape to the familiar lush green of springtime. The much-needed warmth has also benefited our farms; evidence will be on display throughout the region as the seasonal farmers’ markets return. Herewith is our annual update; some markets have passed from the scene, and some new ones have cropped up. Also, Great Barrington’s market has new digs at the fairgrounds. What might you find at any number of the 30-plus farmers’ markets across our towns? Early vegetables including radishes, asparagus, baby turnips, rhubarb, and arugula; staples such as milk, meat, fish, and bread; plus honey, maple syrup, wine, jams, pickles, cheese, and pies. There will also be cut flowers and bedding plants for the house and garden and handmade lotions and candles.
