Wellesley Farmers’ Market is proud to announce the launch of an exciting new model. Beginning Thursday, September 7th, hundreds of farm fresh and organic products, including vegetables, meats, fish, dairy, eggs, bakery and pantry items, fruits, juices, pet and home offerings from more than 80 New England farmers and food producers, will be available every Thursday from 12:30-2:30. Pre-orders are available, so place your first order today.

Residents and food lovers who work in and around Wellesley simply choose from hundreds of just harvested Farmers to You products via www.wellesleyfarmersmarket.com, and indicate the Wellesley Farmers’ Market pick-up site ( UU Church at 309 Washington St.). Seamless home delivery by a local pedal-powered business is also available by request. See details online.

The Wellesley Farmers’ Market team is thrilled to announce this exciting new model that brings a wider variety of products, offers a longer season and is highly efficient for the small, local, family farmers. Wellesley Farmers’ Market remains dedicated to serving the food insecure in this community and is looking for sponsors for a Food Pantry Program. For more information, please email  wellesleyfarmersmarket@gmail.com. Keep an eye out for familiar Wellesley Farmers’ Market vendors and community opportunities in coming months as well.

Many gluten-free and vegan options available. 

Please join us for the next action meeting on Sunday, September 17th from 1-3 pm at 161 Oakland Street. Never been before? No problem. Sustainable Wellesley gets together a few times a year to talk about issues happening in our community and what we can do to make a difference. As we mentioned last month there is a A LOT happening during these “quiet summer months”. Feel free to take some summer actions of your own.

  2. Know about the State’s SMART Solar incentive program, or want to learn more? Email us at info@SustainableWellesley.com to get involved.

  3. We are looking to create a green awards program in town. If you are organized, looking for a tangible, meaningful project, please reach out to us at info@sustainablewellesley.com for more information.

Great news! There will be a second bus run for 8.30 arrival at the high school.  This will accommodate students who don’t have a class until second period.   This is a great way to get your students to school, and reduce the number of cars on the road and congestion at drop off.

The fee for the year is $521, due upon registration.  The family cap will still apply to the fee if your family has other registered students.

For those already registered for the bus, NO ACTION IS REQUIRED. Your student will be issued a bus pass that can be used for either the 7:30 or the 8:30 am bus.

Bus passes and route schedules will be issued to all registered students by Monday, August 21, 2017.  All bus stops on the High School 7:30 am routes will be the same for the 8:30 am routes.  There are no changes to the afternoon bus routes and schedules.

We encourage you to have your student take advantage of this transportation option.
