Amherst Farmers Market

When the Amherst Farmers Market started selling produce on the Common decades ago, it was just about the only one in the area. Today, though, there are scores of markets all over the Pioneer Valley on just about every day of the week during the growing and harvest seasons. Yet, the Amherst market remains one of the best. What’s the secret? “You can sit down enjoy the music and do some quality shopping, meet the farmers. It’s more than just a shopping experience,” says market manager Tammy Ryan. The market also features lessons on how to plant and take care of home gardens, local alcohol, wine and pre-made food vendors, and all kinds of dairy products. Does Ryan ever worry about competition from other markets? “No,” she says, “the more the merrier. The more access to good food, the better.”
