Updated: Jul 12
The Wakefield Farmers Market is back in business, Saturday, July 10 from 9am to 1pm, 468 North Ave/Hall Park. We’d like to thank the Wakefield Police, Massachusetts State Police and all Law Enforcement involved in last Saturday’s incident which caused our cancellation. We are thankful that it ended peacefully and that no one was harmed. We are also thankful to our volunteers and vendors for helping us get the word out to everyone. This was definitely not on my cancellation Bingo card.
Come by and visit us for the freshest and best produce, specialty foods and handmade goods.
