WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Williamstown Farmers Market Winter Market returns Saturday March 16 at the First Congregational Church from 9 am until noon.
Farmer and crafters will be present to sell farm fresh meats, cheeses, honey, maple syrup, fresh eggs, artisan crafts, goat soap, seafood straight from Boston, and fresh baked breads.
Although it is still too early for fresh vegetables, farms like Bigfoot Farm, a regular at the farmers market, is getting the ball rolling.
"I grow a really wide variety of veggies, from carrots, potatoes, and onions, to lettuce greens, kale, kohlrabi, ginger and tomatoes  Bigfoot Farm is getting rolling, starting the first seeds: onions, lettuce, kale, bok choy, artichoke, parsley, beets, collard greens, and ginger in heated greenhouse space rented from Mount Williams Greenhouses in North Adams," farmer Brian Cole said. "A synergistic relationship whereby I don't have to manage/own the costly infrastructure needed for early season seed starting, while making good friends with other plant growers in the community. Each week I will be sowing more and more seeds. Come April I'll be getting out into the field to begin working on the soil and a couple [of] small infrastructure improvements."  
Also, in the upcoming month Williamstown Farmers Market will expand its website to include more information about the market's history, mission and products of each vendor.
