Just because we are in the middle of winter doesn’t mean your access to local food is shut down! We continue to have homegrown and local produce on the produce floor, even now deep into January. In addition to our homegrown leeks, there are amazing locally grown roots like radishes, carrots, turnips, and beets, as well as apples, acorn squash, fingerling potatoes, cabbage, shiitake mushrooms, garlic, fresh greens and even local heirloom tomatoes from a number of area growers, including

  • Winter Moon Farms, Hadley MA
  • Fresh Box Farms, Millis, MA
  • Delftree Farms, North Adams, MA
  • Vanguarden Farm, Dover MA
  • Sunnycrest Orchards, Sterling, MA
  • Heron Pond Farms,  NH
  • Backyard Farms, ME

to name just a few.

  

But coming up next weekend, January 28th from 11 am to 3 pm we will be focusing on the other local food makers in our area. In what sounds to be our largest Local Food Fest yet, with over 40 of our small local businesses in attendance, our vendors and makers will be sampling their creative and artisan made foods for you. Please stop in and hear their stories and meet the farmers and chefs behind some of your favorite Volante Farms finds. Many of them are brand new to our shop and several have been with us through the years.
