Second stage farmers

Fresh strawberries from Turnip the Beets Farm during opening day of the farmers market at Second Stage Amherst in late May 2019.

The Second Stage Farmers Market is kicking off its 8th season with drive-through service on Thursday, April 9.

Participants can find links to order forms to submit ahead of time and orders will be waiting for pickup between 3:30 and 6:30 p.m. The pre-order and drive-through is necessary due to social distancing orders from the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

The market at Second Stage Amherst, 194 Second St. in Amherst will conduct its drive-through service on Thursdays and accepts cash only unless customers prepay directly with vendors. Orders will be delivered to cars at the back of the building (follow signs).

A wide variety of meats, eggs, jams, condiments and baked goods are available the first week. Availability of items will be updated weekly on the order form.
