The North Adams Farmers Market has been around for 42 years and the new season is starting up this Saturday.

 The North Adams Farmers Market is launching with a new twist this year — a community composting program through which customers can discard fruit and vegetable scraps, coffee grounds, grains and more. 

The Berkshire Eagle reports that according to Suzy Helme, the city’s events coordinator, market customers are welcome to bring their compostables to be placed in new compost bins and participating market farmers will rotate turns taking the bins back to their farms for use in their composts.

Also being added to the market will be a community tent with picnic tables and benches.

The hours for the market are from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
