Valley Bounty: Winter Fare at farmers markets
WINTER FARE AT WINTER MARKETS
Find the full range of winter bounty — greens, grains, roots, meats, cheeses, squash, onions, garlic, jams, pickles and more — at CISA’s Winter Fare days celebrating year-round local eating as well as CISA’s 20th year anniversary. Coming to a farmers market near you, Winter Fare days include workshops, barter fairs, music and more. Winter Fare activities will be held today at the farmers markets in Northampton and Springfield and next Saturday (Feb. 2) at the Amherst and Greenfield markets. Thursday evening, at the Center for the Arts in Northampton, a panel of farmers will discuss how agriculture in the Pioneer Valley has changed over the last 20 years.
