Join the Wakefield Farmers Market this Saturday, October 2, from 9am to 1pm, 468 North Ave/Hall Park. We’ve got lots of things planned for the day, as we enter the last month of the market season.
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: Curious Creatures returns October 9, at 11 am. Plus, the Magic of Yarrow and his awesome balloon sculpture.
Stop by the Market Manager tent, show you support for the market, and place your order for your very own Wakefield Farmers Market tee! A $25 donation gets you one of our awesome new 100% cotton tees that you can wear proudly, and fashionably too.
While you are there, check out our free cookbook offerings! Special thank you to the Friends of Beebe Library for partnering with us! They will be available at the Market Manager tent each week.
Including a WFM Support & Shop tent throughout the month of October, where you can get a chance to win lots of great items from our market vendors. This week look for an apple picking experience for 4 at Farmer Dave's and much more. Plus I'm putting my maker’s cap back on and will be selling lots of great handmade, seasonal and home decor items to benefit our farmers market.
