What would happen if everyone bought their gifts for the holidays locally? People talk about a "10% shift," but why not a 100% shift for the holiday season? How much more money would we keep here, in our community, supporting our tax base, our retailers, our artisans, our schools, our non-profits and our people? Just think how much cooler your presents would be if they were all locally made. Find some gift suggestions in our BerkShares Holiday Shopping Guide.
Join us at Berkshire Grown's Holiday Farmer's Market on Sat., Dec. 13th at Monument Mountain Middle School in Great Barrington, 10 am - 2 pm, and at the Southern Berkshire Chamber's Holiday Stroll on Main Street in Great Barrington that same day, 4 - 7:30 pm. We'll be exchanging dollars for BerkShares; it's a great place to spend BerkShares on holiday presents!
