For years, due to economic decline and government neglect, the area surrounding Mason Square (formally Winchester Square) was a food desert.  While there are plenty of fast food and take-out options, until the market, there were very little chances to purchase nutritious, whole foods at an affordable price.  Three years ago, the Concerned Citizens of Mason Square organized and started the Mason Square Farmer’s Market to fill that void.

Building upon the advocacy work of longtime resident, and Director of Community Services for Springfield Partners for Community Action, Synthia Scott-Mitchell,  and organized by Tasha Moultrie-Phillips, Program Coordinator for Target: Hunger Springfield a prject of the Food Bank of Western Massachusetts, Concerned Citizens of Mason Square have established the market in parking lot of Baystate Health Mason Square Neighborhood Health Center.
