Hello <<First Name>>,
Hello from the Pittsfield Farmers’ Market to all our regular and occasional customers.
You’re getting this newsletter because you signed up for it at our website or at our Facebook page.
2022 is our market’s 25th Anniversary!
This year marks the 25th year that the Pittsfield Farmers’ Market has offered locally produced meats, veggies, fruits, seedlings and more to the residents of Pittsfield and surrounding towns. Since 1997 over three dozen farmers, bakers, and artists have offered their wares to shoppers at the market at the corner of Hathorn Park. Visit our website any time to see who will be selling at market this year.
Come meet the new folks at market…
For the 2022 season we have several new market members who will be attending for the first time.
Michelle Piper of Birch Brook Farm from St. Albans will have veggies, herbs, and garden seedlings, microgreens, chicken and duck eggs, wood crafts and perhaps some baked goods and jams.
Jennifer Morton of Rise & Thyme Farm from Detroit has baked goods, pickles, jams and eggs that she will be bringing to market.
Sami & Kasey Toivola of Medelby Berry from Winslow will be offering their strawberries from late June through the fall. Their varieties are day-neutral, allowing a very long harvest season. They also expect to bring their strawberry jam.
…and renew acquaintances from last year.
Tom Roberts from Snakeroot Organic Farm in Pittsfield will be returning again with an ever-expanding selection of ready-to-plant garden seedlings and perennials, along with a few of the season’s early greenhouse greens. Always willing to share gardening stories, vegetable varieties, and insect woes, we welcome our chances to talk with the shoppers, whether we’ve talked before or if you’re brand new to town or to the market. You’re taking time to stop by the market is the reason we keep showing up with our garden’s bounty.
Hanna Lonk from Early Ground Farm in Detroit will be returning with pastured pork and free range chicken and duck eggs. We will also be bringing a sprinkling of caramel candies from cream from our family milk cow, homemade old fashioned lard soap and cut flowers when available. In the spring we’ll have some seedlings and then fall pumpkins, gourds, winter squash, corn decorations and all your fall time needs!!
Bonnie Melanson from Melanson’s Orchard in St. Albans won't have apples until mid-summer, and then she'll be at market with her apples and delicious apple jelly.
Ashleigh Howell from Honestleigh Acres Gardens in Unity. Her breads and pastries will appear at market throughout the season.
Winona Sacks from Grace to Glory Goats in Palmyra will be at our market this year with ever-changing flower bouquets and several fragrances of goat milk soap.
We accept Bumper Crop coupons.
This year the market is accepting Bumper Crop $5 coupons given out by area businesses to their employees as part of their “Eat Healthy” campaigns. They can be used to buy foods at many of Maine’s farmers’ markets. If your employer has offered you these, then we’d love to see you use them at our market. Learn more about the Bumper Crop gift voucher program here. Of course the market members will also accept cash, checks and CC/DC for your purchases, as well.
