At each of our farmers markets, we are committed to providing customers with a wide variety of fresh, local and sustainably grown 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 rural farms in Lincoln and Beverly. In addition to our own 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.
Farmers markets have long served as vibrant centers for community building, information exchange, health and nutrition education, and local entertainment as well as a venue for community economic development. At the markets we run in Lynn and Boston, we invite local growers and food vendors to sell their produce and other goods alongside us. We also seek out community and youth groups, nutritionists, artists, musicians, and other entertainers to attend the market throughout the season, contributing to the vibrant, festive atmosphere that make farmers’ markets such an enjoyable place to visit and shop.
Specialty Vegetables, Affordable Prices
In order to better serve the needs and tastes of our diverse community we also grow and sell local favorites. "Tongue of Fire" shell beans (used in Cape Verdean cuisine), assorted hot peppers, calaloo (used in dishes from the Caribbean), and Asian cooking greens are all grown per request of our market customers. As another aspect of our commitment to the community, 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 in neighborhoods that have limited access to fresh, local, and sustainably grown produce, we are proud to be able to give back in this way to the neighborhoods that host our urban farm lots.
