July 31 Market Day
Join the Wakefield Farmers Market, Saturday, July 31 from 9am to 1pm, with everything you’ll need to fill your fridge with lots of local yummies. The market will be full of freshly picked fruits, veggies, locally raised meats, out of this world fish, cheese, and specialty foods you won’t find on any supermarket shelf.
It’s such a wonderful feeling we get, seeing everyone enjoying the market, having picnics in the park, playing frisbee, walking their furry friends, with the beautiful surroundings of Lake Quannapowitt.
Kayla Russell will be here with her creative Henna designs. The Magic of Yarrow and his awesome balloon sculpture.
As always, have hula hoops, sidewalk chalk, and jump ropes on hand for kids of all ages. Thanks to the Wakefield Co-operative Bank for sponsoring our kids events this year.
Save the Date: Join us August 14 at 11am for a demonstration from Curious Creatures.
