SOUP! Black Sheep is offering a vegetarian and a meat ‘Market Soup,’ made made from food from our vendors! Come and enjoy our tastiness of our collaboration.
And a big Thank You to our SPONSORS. The Winter Market is a very expensive market to run due to the need to rent an indoor space. The following businesses and organizations make it possible:
Easthampton Savings Bank
Umass Extension and Student Farming Enterprise
Amherst Area Chamber of Commerce
Florence Savings Bank

Richie Pace Richie Pace is a Senior English major at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. Though he currently treats music performance as only a supplement towards his undergraduate experience, he plans on pursuing music full-time once he earns his degree in May.
