Local ingredients, very creative chef. Thursday night specials are three course meals for 25. Delicious food on the more upscale side of dining, but smaller dishes and brunch on weekends will satisfy thrifty folks. Kombucha on tap.

This is a lovely setting overlooking the tumbling waters of the sawmill river. People come here with their laptops quite often. Simple and good menu. Beer and wine available and the little bar (six stools or so) is a local favorite spot...

Love love this place! tons of picnic tables in season for their outdoor takeout business. Cool funky decor of paint by numbers collection and vintage clocks make it interesting to dine inside. Poetry readings in off-season sometimes here. Lots of different salads and sandwiches to choose from and incredible homemade ice-cream!

The FRTA schedule is available online and at bus stops. Service is spotty due to the large service area and spread out population they are trying to cover, but service between Turners and Greenfield is very reliable. Making connections to Hampshire county can be circuitous. No weekend service, but that may change soon (we hope) so check online.
