NEWS FLASH: Jane (West River Creamery), Sandy (Vermont Gourment Candy Dish, and Kathleen (Emmett’s Edibles) cannot be with us this week. They will be back on July 9!


And, before we go on, don’t forget:
Volunteers ALWAYS welcome and needed!
You can sign up here for spots and tasks throughout the entire season.

We are in pretty good shape this week, but need one more for set up and for one for a 9-11 table shift – and a few more hands on deck
is always a good thing. 

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.


It’s Getting Prettier!!!  Set up and breakdown will be much easier from now on because we have a storage unit at Hall Park!  Not more lifting heavy tents and more into the minivan!!!
And, no fear; the unit is being beautifully painted this week by Wakefield High art students under the direction of Art teacher Joy Schilling.  Thank you to Steve Maio, Town Administrator, Rick Stinson, DPW Director, and the Board of Selectmen for your support!


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.
