Every year, the Shelburne Falls Farmers Market hosts a special Autumn market event. Again this year, the market will be held on the weekend before Thanksgiving: Sunday, November 24th from 11:00am-2:00pm at the Buckland Shelburne Elementary School.
The 9th Annual 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 & Tex LaMountain (11:00 – 12:30) and Tim Van Egmond (12:30 – 2:00).
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.
