Greenfield Farmer’s Market draws in vendors despite COVID-19

GREENFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Farmer’s markets have always been popular in western Massachusetts and the coronavirus pandemic doesn’t seem to have an effect on the events.

The typical Saturday farmer’s market in downtown Greenfield featured an abundance of locally grown fruits and vegetables. Many people came out to support local farmers despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

One vendor told 22News, coronavirus concerns have not had an effect on their revenue this year.

“Right now going on vacation, not having to compete, the farmer’s market not having to compete with certain festivals or concerts, things like that. I’ll admit this was pretty much the only horse in town on Saturdays,” Nathaniel Hussy said.

Farmer’s markets here in the Pioneer Valley usually continue operating well into the fall, before winter farmer’s markets begin to appear.
