Market Day August 13, 2022
This Saturday, August from 9am to 1pm, the Wakefield Farmers Market will be full of freshly picked fruits, veggies, locally raised meats, fresh fish, dairy, and specialty foods you won’t find on any supermarket shelf. As I write this on Wednesday morning, the weather is predicted to be beautiful, NO humidity and a high of 78.
