The Great Barrington Farmers Market at 18 Church St. will begin one hour late, running from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 31, because of the forecasted temperatures.
Market trick-or-treating will still take place on Saturday for children ages 0-10 who come in costume. Market vendors have put together bags of healthy-ish treats and families can take advantage of doubling their WIC farmers market checks, EBT and/or P-EBT benefits before the market closes on Nov. 14.
