BRPC has partnered with Berkshire Farm & Table and Alchemy Initiative and received a grant from the USDA. This initiative is expected to be a win-win-win, as it benefits local farmers, strengthens the local economy and brings fresh, local food to residents and visitors of Berkshire County. This Community Engagement Survey has been developed to help us better understand the community’s overall shopping preferences including farmers markets, grocery stores, farm stands, etc. This is an opportunity to tell us whether you already shop at the area’s farmers markets and, if not, what the barriers are to visiting farmers markets and what aspects of a market might interest you enough to visit one. As a result of this survey we hope to better meet your needs as a customer. Click here to take the survey!
