Something for Everyone at the Wellesley Farmers’ Market

Come check out the vibrant marketplace of locally grown produce and goods at the Wellesley Farmers’ Market.

Plan to visit the market on Saturdays from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. at 309 Washington Street (UU Church) through the summer and well into fall to pick up fresh-baked whole grain breads, a wide range of produce, apples and berries, thoughtfully produced fresh meats and eggs, milk, butter, cheese, flour and so much more.

There are numerous reasons to buy locally-sourced food. Food grown in our own community was harvested very recently and thus tastes better and keeps its nutrients. Locally sourced food also supports our local economy, preserves local open spaces and encourages healthy land stewardship. In addition, buying local means most of the time buying from the farmer. This connection between the farmer and consumer is idyllic. It’s special to be able to ask questions about how our food is grown and raised and at the same time helps producers to be responsive to the needs of customers.

Vendors include:

Tangerini’s Spring Street Farm (Charlie grew up here) – Variety of organic produce and flowers and is a model for the preservation of open space

Brookford Farm – Organic produce, stored vegetables, milk, butter, cheese, beef, bacon, and flour

Hackleboro Orchards – Varieties of apples, berries and other fruit
