For this week’s Feature Friday, let’s head to Charlemont, Massachusetts to an excellent cafe and market, Wells Provisions. Opened in 2021, Wells Provisions has already become a staple of the small downtown Charlemont area. It’s the perfect place to stop in for a fresh coffee in the morning, or to purchase a craft beer or wine [...]
Here in Franklin County, we are so lucky to have a variety of delicious eateries, who use fresh, local products. Wells Provisions in Charlemont is no different in that category. They use all local products such as coffee from Barrington Coffee Roasting Company, meat from Freeman Farms in Heath, vegetables from Good Bunch Farm, maple syrup from Winston Sugar House and more. Yet on top of all that, Wells Provisions brings a whole new flavor to the area.
Wesley and Levi Janssen moved their family of five to Western Mass last year from New Orleans, where they had built their careers in the restaurant business. Now they are offering their fine dining New Orleans style dishes in a casual Western Mass hilltown environment.
The menu at Wells Provisions includes classics from their home in the South such as Gumbo, Po-Boys, cajun poutine, and shrimp & grits. You can stop in for a delicious meal or pick up a gourmet ready-to-heat meal from their fridge and bring it home to enjoy. They offer a full breakfast menu, lunch menu, and they even have an ice cream window for scoops of local Maple Valley, Bart’s, and Snow’s ice cream.
Check out my Community Video below showing my own visit to Wells Provisions with some words from Wesley and Levi. I highly recommend visiting this wonderful addition to our local business community.
