New Farmers Market “Crops” Up in Swampscott this Summer!
Spring has sprung; seeds have been sowed; and Swampscott is opening its first ever Farmers’ Market!
The mission of the Swampscott Farmers' Market is to provide a venue where local farmers, producers, crafters and artisans can come together to provide a variety of fresh local produce and related products directly to our community members.
The Swampscott Farmers’ Market aims to preserve and foster the well being of our local agricultural system, protect farm open space from being developed, and to promote and advocate for healthy eating and maintaining a healthy environment while providing a wholesome social experience that helps build our local
Every Sunday, starting on June 10th through October,
from 10 am to 1 pm, the Swampscott Farmers’ Market will be open for business at the Swampscott High School, 200 Essex Street, Swampscott.
Rain or shine, the Farmers’ Market will feature a wide variety of produce, meats, fish, breads, flowers and crafts from farmers, food producers, and artisans from around Massachusetts and nearby New England states.
Anchoring the market, Swampscott will have Clark Farm providing a large variety of produce, as well as John Crow Farms bringing produce, meats and poultry. Other vendors include Maitland Mountain Farms (known for their pickles and flowers), Fille de Ferme (producer of homemade jams and jellies), Cherry Street Fish Market, Big Sky Breads, and more.
“The Swampscott Farmers Market will offer residents of Swampscott and the surrounding area a chance to catch up with neighbors and purchase fresh produce directly from local growers,” say market co-managers Rob Chavez and Kimberley Fillenworth. “This is our first year. We are excited to connect our community to our local producers. The more community support, the more successful the market will be.”
