At The Food Project, we believe that everyone has a right to fresh, healthy produce. We help make this a reality by strategically locating our farmers markets in areas with limited fresh food access.
The Food Project sells local vegetables and fruits straight from our farms at our farmers markets in Boston and Lynn. All of our markets accept SNAP/HIP, Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Coupons, WIC, debit, credit, and cash as payment.
In addition to increasing food access, we hope that our farmers markets serve as centers for community involvement. To help accomplish this, The Food Project’s farmers markets often include community and youth groups, nutritionists, fitness instructors, artisans, musicians, and more.

SNAP/HIP Accessible Food

Much of the food sold at these markets is grown and harvested by our youth, staff, and volunteers on our urban farms located only blocks away from the markets. Our suburban farms supplement this selection with crops that require more space to grow, like melons and winter squash. In addition to our sustainably grown produce, you may also find flowers from our farms, fruit from nearby orchards, and local honey.
A Vibrant Food Culture
Our markets build on the strong and vibrant food cultures in Boston and Lynn. In order to better serve our customers, we grow and sell community-requested veggies such as “Tongue of Fire” shell beans (often used in Cape Verdean cuisine), assorted hot peppers, callaloo (often used in Caribbean dishes), and East Asian cooking greens, among other produce.
