NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The North Adams Farmers Market has opened for in-person shopping Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.: outdoors at the North Adams Armory, 206 Ashland Street, North Adams.

During the quarantine, the farmers market created an online marketplace where customers could order from participating farms. Community volunteers then packed and delivered upwards of 125 orders every Saturday. The market is now a hybrid market: online purchasing is still available but not required to shop in-person at the market.

Per state guidelines, safety measures have been put into place, including contact tracing, wearing masks, maintaining safe distance, no pets, and limiting the number of people in the market at any given time. 

All vendors at the North Adams Farmers Market accept EBT and the Market Match program doubles up to $30 of each EBT transaction. The Healthy Incentive Program (HIP) is also accepted by Square Roots Farm. Credit cards, debit cards and cash are all accepted.

Participating farms include Full Well Farm, Christian Chenail, Square Roots Farm, Red Shirt Farm, Senecal's Sugarhouse, Lion's Tooth Farm, Cookies and More, Berkshire Worms (pre-order only), Morin Gardens, AOK BBQ Bread (pre-order only), Willy Chenail. More vendors will participate as the season progresses.

Letter: Vote Bond for Mayor

Letter to the Editor

To the Editor:

I am proud to support Lynette Bond for mayor of the City of North Adams. Lynette has the knowledge and ability to succeed, the spirit and open-mindedness to collaborate and build consensus, the integrity and strength of character to make tough choices with clarity and compassion, and a love for North Adams that will make her a powerful and effective advocate and champion for our city and everyone who lives, learns, and works here.

When I taught in the North Adams Public Schools I assigned "To Kill a Mockingbird" to many of my 8th grade English classes. I've read the book dozens of times and a line that always has stuck with me is "You never really understand a person until you consider things from [their] point of view." It's a lesson in understanding and inclusion I emphasized with my students, and my children. This quality of empathy and consideration — this style of leadership — is something I have seen Lynette l demonstrate, personally and in her campaign. Lynette builds relationships, listens to people's concerns, and truly cares about every person in North Adams, our history, and our potential. She also is pragmatic and won't make promises she can't keep.

Lynette knows that education is a priority. As a former North Adams Public School teacher, I admire the leadership and tenacity that Lynette demonstrated as a champion for the Colegrove Park Elementary School project. I know she will bring the same energy and commitment to serving all North Adams students and educators as mayor and School Committee chair.

Lynette Bond is the right choice for the future of North Adams. She will be a caring, effective, successful mayor for everyone in our city. I encourage you to get to know Lynette, and to support her with your vote in the preliminary election on Sept. 21 and the general election on Nov. 2. Then, when Lynette is sworn in as the first woman mayor of North Adams, you will know we have a leader of whom we all can be proud.

Jane Bernard
North Adams, Mass.
