Winter Farmers' Market Returns To Forest Park For 10th Season

Farmers' Market at Forest Park

Freezing temperatures may have ended the growing season in the Northeast, but farmers are still finding venues to sell products at winter markets.

Although far fewer in number than the outdoor farmers’ markets, there are several long-standing winter markets in western Massachusetts including ones in Amherst, Northampton, and Springfield.

The Forest Park Winter Farmers’ Market is now in its 10th year in Springfield.

WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill spoke with market manager Belle Rita Novak.
