Farmer's Market

Harvest Time! There’s another Farmer’s Market this Saturday Morning, September 24, at the Saint Anthony’s Municipal Parking Lot, across from the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art on Marshall Street in North Adams. Fresh produce and other locally grown items will be offered for sale beginning at 8:00 AM. Although the market is open until noon, the public is urged to get to the market early, as some of the most desirable items are sold quickly

MASS MoCA

The “Regarding the Rural” exhibit will open at MASS MoCA on September 24th. Among contemporary photographers, several are working to breathe new life into a distinctly American genre: rural photography. The act of documenting people and places in rural America is not new – during the New Deal era, government organizations such as the Farm Security Administration (FSA) sponsored photographers such as Walker Evans and Dorothea Lange to record the impact of the Great Depression on rural communities. The resulting photographs, which were widely distributed in newspapers and magazines, served as a way to “introduce Americans to America” as well as drum up support for New Deal rural programs. While the political and social context has changed, this tradition continues today in the work of William Christenberry, Matthew Moore, Julie Moos, Paul Shambroom, and Alec Soth, the artists that comprise MASS MoCA’s newest exhibition Regarding the Rural. The exhibition opens on Saturday, September 24, 2005, and will run through the end of December 2005

Fall Foliage Festival Kick-Off

There will be fun for the whole family on Sunday, September 25, as the Foliage Festival begins. The Festival kicks off this Sunday with the annual Children’s Road Race at Joe Wolfe Field. There are five boys and girls divisions, with ages from tots to 11 years old, as of race day. The footraces are fun, and the courses are short in length, as opposed to longer, more arduous competitions. Check-in and free registration is at 11:30 and the races begin at 12:30. Spectators are welcome to sit in the Joe Wolfe bleachers and enjoy the event. Trophies will be awarded for the first three finishers in each division, and ribbons will be given to all participants. A parent or guardian must accompany all children, and sign the permission slip / release.

A highlight of the day is the Children’s Fair, held nearby at Western Gateway Heritage State Park, also beginning at 12:30. It will be a special time for the whole family, with free admission, music, fun, give-aways, low cost food items and healthy snacks and entertainment for children of all ages. For more information, please contact Dale Waterman at 663-6312. In the event of inclement weather on the day of the Fair, call the Office of Tourism at 664-6180. The North Adams Office of Tourism, Western Gateway Heritage State Park, and the Northern Berkshire United Way sponsor all the day’s events.
