Talk about fresh – you can buy local strawberries mere hours after they were plucked from the farm. And honey straight from the hive. And milk straight from the cow.
Our vibrant, bustling farmer’s markets bring you fresh, local, organic food. Stroll through the market on a sunny Saturday morning. Pick up some goat cheese, baked bread and just-picked peaches for a picnic. Or grab some ingredients for dinner, like some fresh herbs, a head of lettuce, and a few tomatoes. Vendors sell everything from flower bouquets to homemade kimchi.
If you miss one farmer’s market in Northampton, you can hit up another in Amherst, Easthampton, Florence, or Williamsburg. Not to mention all of the farm stands lining the streets. You’ll have veggies coming out of your ears – which is a good thing, in our opinion.
