Winter Farmers' Market Opens In New Location At Forest Park In Springfield

Farmers' Market at Forest Park


       The popularity of winter farmers’ markets has been growing for several years.

      The markets provide farmers with a source of income during what are often lean months. And shoppers can find locally-sourced foods year round.

              One of the oldest winter farmers’ market operates in Springfield’s Forest Park.    

      As it opened this month for a new season, WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief spoke with the longtime market manager Belle Rita Novak.

The record-setting tenure of Springfield Mayor Domenic Sarno. The 2011 tornado and its recovery that remade the largest city in Western Massachusetts. The fallout from the deadly COVID outbreak at the Holyoke Soldiers Home. Those are just a few of the thousands and thousands of stories WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill has covered for WAMC in his nearly 17 years with the station.
