HOLYOKE, Mass (WWLP) – The Holyoke Farmers’ Market is celebrating its 40th year anniversary.
In a news release sent to 22News, the Holyoke Farmers’ Market has extended their hours and is moving to the Veterans’ Memorial Park every week from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. starting Thursday.
According to Holyoke Farmers Market manager Candice Pelletier, the extended hours of the market will allow time for residents to visit after work.
The Farmers’ Market will be every Thursday until September 26 and offers live music shows in the park, food demonstrations, local fruits, vegetables, and flowers.
“I feel like this location is pretty good especially with the PVTA station being right here a lot of people can come from different areas so they can come here for the plants for the food for everything,” said Aneuddi Sostre of Holyoke.
In the past, the market was held right on High Street. The move allows High Street to stay open to traffic. 22News spoke with Holyoke resident who thinks the change of venue is a good thing.
