The town's first Farmers Market in about a decade will return to the Visitors Center on Sunday.
ADAMS, Mass. — The town will kick off its pilot Farmers Market on Sunday, July 21, and it will run through September.
 
"This is the first year its come back in about a decade since we had it in Adams," said Town Administrator Jonathan Butler. "Fortunately the Agricultural commission took some major steps to get to the point where we're at."
 
The market will open at 11 a.m. and remain open until 2 p.m. at the Adams Visitors Center.
 
Locally raised, grass fed beef and pork, homemade jelly, fresh produce, plans, homemade soaps, handcrafted wooden cradles, homemade bagels and more will be available.
 
More items are expected throughout the summer as the vendor selection expands.
 
All food and items are produced by local vendors, including Elmartin Farm from Cheshire, Emma Morin selling jelly, produce and plants, RCS Crafts, CBM Creations and Sunshine Bagels.
 
This pilot run aims to spark interest in purchasing local foods and goods. 
 
Butler said this pilot run will help the town figure out the best hours, the reception, what kind of vendors are appropriate and how it can grow in the future.
 
He also hopes the market can draw people from out of town and attract customers to local businesses.
 
The Adams Agricultural Commission, the Town of Adams and North Berkshire Mass in Motion, are sponsoring the pilot market to promote sustainable access to healthy food and encourage healthy eating.
