Farmers Market & Wine Barn


The latest addition to The Big E skyline – Eastern States Farmers Market – joins the Wine Barn to double the size of our agricultural presentation area, home to some of New England’s finest wines, cheeses, ciders, chefs and more.

The new Farmers Market encompasses The Fiber Nook, located at the front of the building, which includes a variety of agricultural demonstrations, such as spinning and weaving. You may also purchase products made from sheep’s wool and alpaca fiber.

The building features a brand new Cheese Cave and, nearby, fairgoers can sample and purchase an assortment of winning cheeses from The Big E Gold Medal Cheese Competition. Farm-To-Table products include crackers, spreads, jams, jellies and more.

At the Wine Café, located between the two buildings, treat yourself to a wine slushie and cheese plate. This refreshing and delicious duo is best enjoyed with some relaxation in the courtyard. The Wine Barn returns with the chance to sample and purchase award-winning wines from The Big E Northeast Gold Wine, Cider & Perry Competition. Peruse the many displays of rustic mementos as you decide which decadent wine to take home.

Cooking competitions by 4-H competitors and demonstrations by chefs from Center Square Grill in East Longmeadow, Mass. can be found at the new Farmers Market Demo Kitchen. Make your way to the center of the building, where demos are ongoing daily.
