Will there be a West Brookfield Farmers Market?

The picture above is not of the West Brookfield Farmers Market, but of the Amherst Farmers Market. It is my friend John Spinetti taking a picture of me taking a picture of him.

There is nothing more fun than browsing at a lively farmers market. Okay, okay, a deep massage might be more enjoyable. Still, a farmers market is a good and pleasant part of a community when done right.

Amy Dugas wants to do it right. She is the moving spirit behind the Aspargus Festval every spring. We all know what a good time that is. Last Tuesday evening she spoke before the Selectmen and made a good case. They were sympathetic.

The question is will she feel some love from the Common Committee. What she could use is a lot of support from townspeople. So if you are from WB, keep watching this space.
