The AFM is seeking musicians...
So we're looking for more music at the market. Over the past year we've had some great old-timey groups, fiddlers, guitarists, and other solo acts - it's always a good time, great people, and lucrative - including a gift-basket of fresh produce donated from our farmers... if you're interested in playing at the market, give Max a call at 781 771 8194 to get details. Gig.

News from Jeannette... "This week we'll have a special $1 per pound off all roasts from Chase Hill Farm, including beef and pork roasts. Cook a roast for your Mother's Day dinner! Also, stop by the CHF table and ask about joining the Grassfed Ground Beef Club"
In my humble opinion. There's a few more or less secret spots about. A good place to look is the lot behind the Lone Wolf, and behind the Town Hall - if it's early enough that the brunch crowd has yet to stumble out of bed, there's a pretty good chance of finding a space. If you're going east on Main, it's the first, small right after Boltwood Ave. Another good bet is along S. Prospect Street, and there's access to a lot off of that as well - behind the Amherst Cinema, and another lot close to Amherst Coffee, also better early. There is also parking along Spring Street that will be open this year as the Lord Jeffery Inn is closed for who knows how long. That's the extent of my humble opinion so far - but we'll ask around. Perhaps gratuitously I'd like to add that the absolute best way to get to the market is to walk or ride a bike if possible...
