Berkshire Grown Farmers Market is tomorrow, Nov. 18, at the Williams College Towne Field House on Latham Street in Williamstown, from 10 am-2 pm. Wild Oats Market will be grilling outdoors – Ioka Valley Farm beef burgers and Black Queen Angus pork & black bean burritos. We’ll also have lentil soup, wraps, tofu pups on the grill – and plenty of hot drinks and pastries. It’s going to be a beautiful day, too! See you there! We will also be at the December Holiday Market, on December 16 at the Towne Field House from 10-2.
