BRIMFIELD — Whether it's produce, music or art, if you're into homegrown, the Hitchcock Academy Farmers' Market Festival is the place to be on Saturday, July 11.

The festival, featuring products and productions from a cornucopia of local growers and artists, is but one event in the schedule of the farmers' market, which has been operating every Saturday, April through October, for the last three years.

"There's still many people in the area that don't know about the farmers market," said Linda Fuchs, the farmer's market manager, who has dedicated her weekends, regardless of weather, to the market and the people who both buy and sell goods.

"It's more like the old neighborhood grocery store I would say," Fuchs said of the farmers' market. "Being that Brimfield, Holland and Wales, none of them have grocery stores, it's an opportunity for [people] to come and purchase goods."
