harvest fest

Final outdoor market and
Harvest Festival!

Our 4th outdoor season comes to a close next Saturday (October 15th) with a full line up of vendors, demos, activities and opportunities!!

The American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Walk takes place in the morning. Registration for this non-competitive, inspirational event begins at 9am and the walk is set to start at 10am.

In addition to the weekly line-up of farmers, food producers and artisans, the market will host two chef demos. Dan Smith, chef-owner of John Andrews Farmhouse Restaurant in South Egremont and Anna Gershenson, PCTV’s The Natural Cook, will give shoppers tips to cooking healthfully and seasonally and provide samples of their dishes.

In lieu of an October 3rd Thursday, the Office of Cultural Development will host a Harvest Festival at the market from 11am-1pm. The festival will feature the Greylock Federal Credit Union Halloween Costume Parade with giveaways for each participant.

The Roaming Railroad, popular at 3rd Thursday, will be giving FREE rides to all attendees. There will also be pumpkin painting, dancing with tunes from a Harminy Entertainment DJ, interactive hula hoop demos and performances from Pittsfield City Hoopla.

State Representative Tricia Farley-Bouvier has coordinated market visits from both the Unclaimed Property Division from State Treasurer Deb Goldberg’s office and the Massachusetts Department of Transportation’s E-ZPass Van. The Unclaimed Property Division will be checking names of Massachusetts residents to see if they have any unclaimed property. After an exceptionally busy visit in August, the DOT will return to distribute free E-ZPass transponders to market shoppers.
