Shop Local, Celebrate Community
The Wakefield Farmers Market is not just a place to buy fresh, locally sourced produce and unique artisanal goods; it's a community event that celebrates the hard work and dedication of local farmers, artisans, and entrepreneurs. By shopping at the market, you're not only supporting small businesses but also fostering a sense of togetherness in the Wakefield community.
Want to help? Go to the Get Involved/Volunteer page on our website or stop by the Market Manager table to learn how. We are always looking for setup and breakdown help and encourage kids that need volunteer hours to lend a hand. Many hands make a better market for all.
The market offers SNAP/EBT and will match SNAP purchases up to $15 per visit, so that everyone can afford to get fresh and healthy foods at our market. We could not provide this SNAP Match or its increase from $10, without the generous sponsorship of The Wakefield Food Pantry. Good news for SNAP folks: HIP is back! Use your EBT card to shop with Farmer Dave’s first, then get your additional SNAP bucks and match at the Market Manager Tent.
So, mark your calendar, gather your shopping bags, and head to Hall Park on October 21st, 2023, from 9am to 1pm. Experience the joy of shopping local and indulge in the flavors of the season at the Wakefield Farmers Market!
We can't wait to see you there!
