Join the Wakefield Farmers Market, Saturday, September 25, from 9am to 1pm, with everything you’ll need to fill your fridge with lots of local deliciousness. The market will be full of freshly picked fruits, veggies, locally raised meats, out of this world fish, cheese, and specialty foods.
There’s only 6 markets left of our summer season, and the harvest has begun. This week, we’d like to thank our Market Day Sponsor, Justin Jones at Prudential for his generous donation to this week’s market. Justin is a long time customer of the WFM and this week he gets to stand on the other side of the tent. Justin and his team are celebrating Life Insurance Awareness Month. Stop by his tent to learn more about life insurance & financial planning. Get a free mini-pumpkin (while supplies last!) and register to win the classic board game, The Game of LIFE!
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.
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.
