Summer market begins June 8!

The summer market is right around the corner.

We have 2 new vegetable/fruit farms this season.

Moonlight Farm is a 2 1/2 acre farm in Ashby who farms organically.  Those 2 young legs under the table in the picture on the right is their now almost 2-yr. old Toby.

The second farm also goes to the Wakefield market on Saturday’s – Kelly’s Family Farm.  A 4th generation farmer in Upton, now farms 100 acres of his family’s land that has been around since 1936.

And of course Dick’s Market Garden will be back.  We will also have many of our other farms returning including Shady Pine Farm bringing hormone free meat, Foxboro Cheese, Ackermann Maple FarmShagbark Farm, Laszlo Family Farm; also Roberto’s Seafood, Bagel Land of Winchester, Deano’s Pasta, Habibi (formerly Samira’s), the Popover Lady, and Jennifer Lee’s Bakery bringing gluten and alergen free baked goods.

And a sneak preview of some of our new vendors: the Bread Shop from Wakefield, Ava’s from Arlington, Mr. Tamole from Dorchester, and Pure Pastry from Beverly.
