This is the final week of the season for the Sunday Swampscott Farmers Market where about 15 vendors sell fresh, in-season produce, salsa, honey, jellies, sauces, bread, eggs, meat, baked goods and other natural products. Yes the Swampscott Farmers Market will end the season on October 14th with cookie decorating and free photo opportunities for kids and families. Come and have your photo taken in our Fall Harvest display, among our hay bales, corn stalks and pumpkins. We'll take the photo for you and give you a website where you can download the image free.
