With a little help from our friends

Our market attracts an amazing community and camaraderie feel. Our vendors enjoy being at the market and connecting with market goers. They bring fresh produce and goods to the market, and our market goers help support our vendors by purchasing their local produce and goods. Even better, our vendors support one another. Last week was a bit windy and our food demo chef, Suman Shah, was having difficulty keeping the ‘flame alive’, well, The Bread Shop came to the rescue by giving their panini grill to Suman to help cook the veggies. Find out more about that story, the recipe and our incredible vendor team.

Only 3 more outdoor market days left! We can’t believe it. This Thursday is set to be a lovely day and we still have deliciousness to offer you. There’s also free bike checks from the Melrose Bike/Ped committee from 4-6pm. Reserve your time slot today.  Come out for music, fun, food, and enjoyment.

Senior Day Success!


Thank you for making Senior Day at the Market such a success. We had a nice multigenerational turnout to take part in music, yoga, tai chi, food demos while shopping with our farms. Special thanks to our sponsor, Forestdale Park Senior Living for generously contributing to the day both finically and providing a Brain Healthy Cooking demonstration with one of their Chefs, Eric Malone. Chef Eric shopped for his ingredients right at the market, making the demo so much more engaging and the results were delicious!



We also had a rocking band, The Senior Tones, here’s a little throwback to one of their performances.

Thank you to Susan Becker for leading Tai Chi and Liz Elia for leading chair Yoga! In a sea of activity, these two activities looked very peaceful and centered. It was amazing to watch. IMG_8006
