Try the incredible strawberry ice cream from DecorScoops Ice Cream and the special strawberry scones from Purple Carrot Bread Company.


The market offers SNAP/EBT and will match SNAP purchases up to $15 per visit, so everyone can afford fresh and healthy foods at our market. We could not provide this SNAP Match or its increase from $10, without the generous sponsorship of The Wakefield Food Pantry. Good news for SNAP folks: HIP is back! Use your EBT card to shop with Farmer Dave’s or Moonlight Farm first, then get your additional SNAP bucks and match at the Market Manager Tent.


Join us for a fun-filled day celebrating strawberries and supporting local farmers and artisans. For more information, visit the Wakefield Farmers Market website. See you at the market!
