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.

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.
