Keep Farming Northampton report urges city to pursue a permanent farmers market | GazetteNet.com

The city should pursue a permanent, year-round farmers market downtown that would not only serve as a draw for local food growers and consumers but also include a community center hosting a variety of other events.

The “Keep Farming Northampton” study outlines a series of recommendations its authors believe will boost the local food economy and raise awareness about local food.
