Come to the Wellesley Farmers’ Market on opening day Saturday, June 4th, 9 a.m. – 1 p.m., on the lawn of the Unitarian Universalist Church at 309 Washington Street. Kids come see the wonderful balloon animal artist at Needham Bank’s tent and everyone be sure to get there early to receive a FREE sweet market logo shopping bag sponsored by Wellesley Bank.

We know that the folks of Wellesley are committed supporters of local food,” said Elizabeth of Copicut Farms. “We are delighted to become a part of that community by bringing our pasture-raised poultry and pork to the market this season,” Elizabeth said.

Be sure to say “hi” to the new Marketing Manager Rachel!  Her interest in cooking began in her teens. A desire to perfect her pie crust and cheesecake morphed into a more general interest in food, nutrition and health, and their impact on people and society. This passion ultimately led to a master’s degree in domestic food policy from Tufts University. An enthusiastic and adventurous cook and fervent locavore, Rachel is looking forward to a season of solid growth at the farmers’ market.

Generously hosted by the UU Wellesley, with the Sustainable Business Network of Massachusetts acting as fiscal agent, and funded in part by a variety of local sponsors —  Balanced Rock Investment Advisors, Betsy Kessler of Rutledge Properties, , Needham Bank, Wellesley Bank, and Wellesley Dental —  the market is preparing for another great season.

Throughout the season, look for market programs from local nonprofit groups, with special events designed to engage and delight shoppers of all ages.  The market has plenty of parking, and is a reasonable walk or bike ride from many neighborhoods, bus stops and train stations.

Wellesley Farmers’ Market supports local food growers and producers; celebrates seasonal, local, sustainably grown foods; fosters community; leads the local food movement; and compliments Wellesley’s sustainability movement.
