The Northeast Grainshed Alliance is an 8-state partnership of farmers, entrepreneurs, and grain advocates. The Alliance envisions “a Northeast grain-growing region with its own infrastructure and identity, in which people understand the benefits of growing and eating local grains, and products made with local grains are mainstream and accessible to all.”
The Hardwick Farmers market has been a local favorite for over 20 years. The market has a variety of vendors whose offerings include veggies, meat, honey, maple, prepared food, baked goods, and crafts. The market is located at Atkins Field, 15 acres of land stewarded by the Center for an Agricultural Economy and home to the Hardwick community gardens, a covered pavilion, bicycle pump track, trails, and community orchard.
Visit the market: Fridays | May 20th - October 7th| 3 - 6 pm
