The Greenfield Winter Market is happening this Saturday, January 21, 2023

We’re open from 10 am to 1 pm in the Second Congregational Church in Court Square. Visit local vendors for meat, vegetables, soaps, jams, and more!

We look forward to welcoming you once again to our fabulous Winter Farmers' Market in the Second Congregational Church. You'll find many of your favorite vendors and even a few new ones. This month we welcome Elzire's Goat Milk Soap, Allechant Macarons, and JDB Creations.

Pick up your winter veg and meats for lunch or dinner, jams, jellies, and maple syrup for breakfast, and macarons for dessert! Plenty of vendors have items that would make lovely gifts -- for yourself or others -- and many items to contribute to family gatherings and regular weekly meals.

Pick up some Ahlbin's Fire Cider for your health, goat milk soap for your guest bathroom, and fresh sourdough bread for the pantry. You'll find so much of what you need to satisfy your cravings and desires for household goods and gifts and you're supporting local farmers and artisans.

The Market is on during sun, rain, and snow. We'll see you between 10 AM and 1 PM on the 21st! Don't forget your shopping bags and if you haven't picked up a Frequent Shopper Card from the manager's table -- receive a checkmark for each day of shopping and when the card is full, you're eligible for a raffle of farmers' market goodies. Also, you can purchase GFM tee-shirts and sweatshirts from the manager.

See you this Saturday!

Now that a couple of inches of white powder dripped from the sky, it feels for certain that winter has arrived here at Red Fire Farm! Nevertheless, we have lots of good organic crops to eat, as our root cellars this winter are jam packed with the fall harvest, and our greenhouses are bursting with sweet and succulent winter greens! We have a huge carrot crop in storage this winter with well over 100,000 LBs in storage including purple, yellow and rainbow varieties, as well as the candy sweet orange bolero variety! Also this week we are finding sweet potatoes have developed the peak winter flavor. Try making oven fries for a sweet treat!
