There's a growing movement across all parts of our community of people who want eat local food and support local farmers. "There are many ways that people can access local food," states Thomas, "from double SNAP Benefits at the North Adams Farmers Market, to participating in Community Supported Agriculture (CSA), to building relationships with the people who work hard to provide our community with fresh vegetables, meat, dairy, eggs, honey, fruit and more."
