Every year, the Shelburne Falls Farmers Market hosts a special Autumn market event. This year, the market will be held on the weekend before Thanksgiving. Sunday, November 19th from 11:00am-3:00pm at the Buckland Shelburne Elementary School.
The Shelburne Falls Autumn Farmers Market will feature items from local farms, eateries, artisans, and churches. Items offered for sale will include: fresh produce, local frozen meats, fresh baked items, jams, jellies, marmalade, pickles, popcorn, wool products, plants, bodywork, maple products, leather work, local crafts, and a tea cup auction of local products. There will also be live music all afternoon: Pat and Tex LaMountain (11:00 – 1:00) and Co-op Jazz (1:00 – 3:00).
And a special thank you to Mo’s Fudge Factor for donating candied apples that they made especially for this event! They’re free and fresh from the kitchen, and are made with Fuji apples from the Clark Brothers’ orchard in Ashfield.
Come catch up with friends and neighbors, have lunch, tap your toes to good music, and get your holiday fixings! Parking and admission are free.
The Shelburne Falls Farmers’ Market now is able to accept SNAP for all eligible products at the Market. And Good Bunch Farm is able to process HIP benefits .
