Halloween & Touch A Truck at the Farmer’s Market!

Sadly, we’ve reached the end of our outdoor market season. This Sunday, October 29th will be our last outdoor market of the season. We want to thank everyone for a fantastic year! We’ve had a lot of great feedback on the new location and we appreciate you sticking with us while we work out the kinks of getting settled in a new location.

We’re looking forward to our annual Halloween celebration at the market this weekend. We will be holding the kid’s Halloween Costume Parade starting at 11:00 AM. Goody bags will be provided to all those that participate.

In addition to our Halloween parade, we will be holding a touch-a-truck event for the kids!

Although this is our last outdoor market this year, we will be hosting our 3rd annual Indoor Thanksgiving Market on Sunday November 22nd. Stay tuned for more information on pre-ordering turkeys. We’ll have a wide variety of craft and food vendors so you can stock up on local goods for the holiday.

Thank you for another great year and for your continued support! We look forward to growing the market with this wonderful community!  If you would like to be a part of planning and running the market, we are always looking for more volunteers! Just send us an email or submit a contact form through this site and let us know that you’re interested.


Pumpkin Decorating this Weekend!


It looks like it’s going to be a cold one this weekend but that shouldn’t stop us New Englanders! Let’s get out there and take advantage of the fantastic items the farmers have this time of year. Warm up with some hot coffee & an apple cider donut and then pick up some squash to roast up for dinner and fresh fish or meat.

This weekend we’ll be doing pumpkin decorating with the kids as part of our October Halloweenfest celebration. We will be supplying all of the materials although you are welcome to bring your own pumpkin to decorate as well.

We’ll see you there! Sunday 10-1!


Halloweenfest At the Farmer’s Market!


Starting this Sunday, September 27th and every Sunday up until our last outdoor market on October 25th, we’ll be celebrating October with weekly crafts for the kids. This weekend we’ll be making spooky themed wind chimes!

Sunday October 25th we’ll be holding our 2nd annual Halloween Costume Parade at the market to celebrate the end of the season. Give the kids another reason to show off their costumes, as if they aren’t already wearing them every day in the house.  We’ll also have fun family activities planned that day.


The market is booming this time of year with tables overflowing with apples, pumpkins, squash, apple cider donuts and much more. We only have a few weeks left so enjoy it while you can!

This Weekend’s Market 8-9-15


Thank you to everyone who came out last week, we had a great day, our vendors were happy, our customers were happy and we were happy! Let’s keep the momentum going! We want to be clear, the market is not and was never in danger of closing, we were just trying to start a conversation with the community to get feedback and determine the reason for the lower foot traffic this season. It is normal to experience some dips & peaks and we know things will start to pick up as people get back from their summer travel and get back into the swing of things. Thank you for your continued support!

Tomato season is in full swing and these things are beauties! They are so ripe and delicious, you can just drizzle with a little olive oil and sea salt and pepper and be ready to devour them.  Summer squash and zucchini is also abundant right now along with juicy peaches and plums. Try grilling them and serving with a nice steak or burger from River Rock Farm.


The corn is crisp & sweet, last week I picked up some corn and zucchini and sautéed it with a little garlic and olive oil and then added it to The Soup Guy’s Bootleg Chili and had that for lunches this week. Make sure you talk to your farmers as you shop, they love chatting with you and can often give you ideas for cooking their produce that you may not have thought of.

The kids had fun with the Beach Rock Painting last weekend so we’re going to have that activity again for those who didn’t get a chance to do it or would like to come back and decorate another one.

Vendors joining us this week: Swiss Bakers, Salem Spice, Alfalfa Farm, Cannoli Corner, Grant Farm, Ackerman Maple Farm, Next Step Living, Clark Farm, Moran’s Pet Food, Lanni Orchard, Golden Cod Fish, River Rock Farm, Long Hill Orchard, All Fruit, Pour Man’s Coffee, Pickle Emporium, Rowand’s Fish & the Soup Guy.
