A Final Thank You for the 2020 Season & Vendor Resources
Dear Friends –
Every Tuesday morning over the past five months, we’ve reached out to let you know about the bounty of fresh, local foods available for purchase at Williamstown Farmers Market-Essentials, and you’ve responded with overwhelming support and enthusiasm. Starting the moment our online store opened each week, customers selected an array of veggies, cheeses, seedlings, herbs, syrup, tarts, meats, jams, breads, eggs, and much more. This has been truly inspiring, and a life-saver for our local farmers and producers during a very challenging year.
This week, with the market having just drawn to a close, we are simply saying a heartfelt and enormous THANK YOU to everyone who helped make this happen. Our thanks to the many people and local institutions whose dedication and generosity enabled us to bring WFM-Essentials to the community this year. We’d also like to share how you can continue to find most of our WFM-Essentials vendors in the coming weeks and months. Check out the listing at the end of this letter for specifics, and please mark your calendars for the upcoming Berkshire Grown indoor markets on Sundays, Nov. 22 and Dec. 20.
To our customers, of course, we are deeply grateful. Perhaps the best way to show how you’ve supported our local food community is to share a few numbers from our WFMEssentials.org ordering platform:
