The popular Westfield Farmers' and Artisans' Market opens its tenth season on Saturday, May 28 at 9 a.m. in Moore Park. Shoppers will see many familiar vendors and some new, like Green Heron Growers and Maple Run Country Farms. The Market features local products grown or made by our vendors. Shoppers will see fresh fruits and vegetables, mushrooms, grass fed beef, pork, goat chicken and lamb, tallow and lard, local eggs, baked goods, soap, maple syrup, honey and a wide variety of hand-crafted items ranging from mittens to sculpture.

Guitarist Tom Troccoli will be back with his repertoire of rock, blues, jazz and folk. He's been practicing all winter for his upcoming performance season and has even written a theme song for the market. Ivory Wind Acres owners Rachel Gardner and Sean Mapes are returning with a new farm-to-fork menu of prepared food items built around their farm-raised, grass-fed meats. The farmers' market organization will serve hot coffee from the information booth near the gazebo.

Not-for-profit organizations like the First Presbyterian Church, Kiwanis and the Westfield Memorial Hospital Foundation the will use the Market opportunity to share information and engage in fundraising activity.
