Looks to be a great day!
Fun News! North Shore 104.9 Radio will be at the market on July 15 for the first visit of this season, starting around 10:00 a.m. Known as your “hometown radio station on the FM dial”, they have a great time entertaining shoppers and create a great market vibe.
Please let your friends know about us! We bring local farm fare, specialty foods, and artisan products to Hall Park (next to Veterans Field) each weekend from mid-June to mid-October. This year the market will be held on Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. starting June 17 through October 14, 2017.

Before we go on, don’t forget:
Volunteers ALWAYS welcome and needed!
NOTE: Potential volunteers are always welcome to “shadow” a volunteer doing a task you are interested in learning how to do before you sign up for a market day volunteer spot next year.
It is time to vote again via the American Farmland Trust Annual Farmers Market Celebration! Our farmers market came in 1st in Massachusetts and #22 nationally last year. For more information and to vote, see :markets.farmland.org
As always, along with accepting credit and debit cards, we also proudly welcome SNAP/EBT transactions in exchange for “Market Bucks.” Our market continues to match SNAP/EBT purchases up to $10 per visit so all of our neighbors can afford to eat healthy local foods. Just stop by the Market Manager Tent to get your Market Bucks. Check back for updates on the new HIP program, brought to you by the USDA and being implemented this summer in Massachusetts. We will let everyone know once Farmer Dave’s has it up and running at our market.
