Sustainable Food…

At each of our farmers markets, we are committed to providing customers with a wide variety of  produce. Much of it comes from our urban farm sites only blocks away from the market, while the rest is harvested by youth, staff, and volunteers on our suburban farms in Lincoln and Beverly. In addition to our produce, you may also find fresh fruit from local orchards, homegrown veggies from neighborhood gardeners, bread and baked goods from local bakeries, flowers from our farm, and local honey from the Boston Honey Company.

 

…Sustaining Community!

Farmers markets have long served as vibrant centers for community building, information exchange, health/nutrition education, and local entertainment as well as a venue for community economic development. In addition to other local food vendors, we also seek out community and youth groups, nutritionists, artists, musicians, and other entertainers to attend the market throughout the season.

 

Specialty Vegetables, Affordable Prices

In order to better serve our customers, we grow local favorites. We sell "Tongue of Fire" shell beans (used in Cape Verdean cuisine), assorted hot peppers, calaloo (used in dishes from the Caribbean), and East Asian cooking greens are all grown per request of our market customers, in addition to other commonly found produce. We sell our sustainably grown vegetables as affordably as possible – aiming to match the prices of conventionally grown vegetables at local supermarkets or bodegas. Our markets are located places with limited access to fresh, local, and sustainably grown produce. We are proud to be able to help keep the local food economy strong in the neighborhoods that host our urban farm lots.
