Berkshire Grown Winter Farmers Markets
Begin New Season 

The first in the season of six Great Barrington Winter Farmers Markets will take place in the Housy Dome (Housatonic is a village of Great Barrington) on Saturday, November 20 and the Williamstown/North Adams Winter Farmers Market will be at Greylock WORKS on Sunday, November 21.The Housy Dome is located at 1064 Main Street in Housatonic and is included on the Berkshire Regional Transit Authority BRTA route #21. The Great Barrington indoor Winter Farmers Markets will continue to run on the third Saturday of the month through April, from 10:00am to 2:00 pm. The Williamstown/North Adams Winter Markets will take place in December, on Sunday, December 19, from 10:00am to 2:00pm, at Greylock WORKS in North Adams.

Executive Director Margaret Moulton says “we are thrilled to offer these indoor winter farmers markets again this year. Even in brief exchanges between farmers and shoppers at the socially-distant markets, we are reminded how lucky we are to know the farmers who grow our food. The monthly Winter Farmers Markets provide community members the opportunity to support local farmers to stock up on locally grown winter vegetables, greens, cheese, and meats, as well as honey, maple syrup, baked goods, jams, and hard cider.”

We are extremely grateful to our Winter Farmers Market sponsors: the Berkshire Food Co-op, Jane Iredale Mineral Cosmetics, the Zilkha Center for Environmental Initiatives at Williams College, Berkshire Bank, Ed Herrington, Inc., The Pass, Rolling Rock Salt, Guido’s Fresh Marketplace, Lee Bank, Williamstown Chamber of Commerce, Mountain One, and the Williams College Center for Environmental Studies. We also thank the Town of Great Barrington for its support in our use of the Housy Dome as a market venue, and Greylock WORKS for hosting the Williamstown/ North Adams Winter Farmers Markets, and our deep appreciation goes to the Massachusetts Department of Agriculture for its support of the Winter Farmers Markets.

Admission to the Farmers Markets is free and SNAP is accepted with a 100% match, available at the Market Manager’s table. For shoppers using SNAP, Berkshire Grown is authorized to process the Healthy Incentive Program (HIP), adding extra money to their EBT wallet for fruits and vegetables on top of regular SNAP benefits.
Off the Shelf and North Plain Farm will grill their signature egg sandwiches and grilled sausages outside the Housatonic location, and at Greylock WORKS, Sweet Brook Farm will grill pasture-raised beef burgers outside the market, and The Break Room will be open indoors, offering coffee, pastries, breakfast, and lunch.
Everyone entering the market area will be required to wear masks, and shoppers are encouraged to plan ahead by making a shopping list and sending only one or two household members to the market.

Shoppers can also make pre-purchases from some vendors via WhatsGood, the e-commerce platform on the Berkshire Grown website,, with pick-up at the vendors’ tables.
