APRIL 21 OPENING DAY OF THE AMHERST FARMERS’ MARKET
The Amherst Farmers’ Market is THE place to be downtown for seven months out of the year. From 8 am – 1:30 pm the bounty of the valley greets your senses. Ramps and maple syrup, lettuce and spring onions and cut flowers are followed by the bounty of the May – October harvests. Live music is often featured. It is always a lively scene, rain or shine.
Artists create chalk art on the sidewalks of downtown to welcome in the spring, the daffodils, and warm weather.
Chalk is available at the BID tent at the Amherst Farmers Market for impromptu chalking and a map is provided to discover the chalk art already in place.
