community.

Changes in technology, work and community have resulted in an epidemic of isolation and depression- especially amongst young adults and seniors.

We see the Pittsfield Farmers Market as an important “third place” in our community: a space outside of the home and workplace where neighbors can meet each other and community life can be cultivated.

Activities

We pride ourselves on being an intergenerational and family-friendly community.

 

Our Market Crew runs a variety of children's activities, including story time, chalk drawing, bubble blowing, and more! 

chefdemos

Every second Saturday of the month our market turns into a culinary classroom as we host healthy cooking demonstrations with Berkshire area chefs.

 

Shoppers learn what is in season, tips and tricks for food preparation and beef up their kitchen skills and confidence!
