Cinda Jones Woos Atkins Market

(Amherst, MA) — WD Cowls owner Cinda Jones hopes to lure Atkins Farms Country Market to a new building in North Amherst. Jones is planning a mixed-use building called the “Trolley Barn” at the site of her former sawmill on Cowls Road. She said she’s trying to persuade the owner of the sprawling upscale market in South Amherst to open a satellite store in the north end of town.
