It looks like we have another beautiful day in the forecast for Sunday, we look forward to seeing everyone at the market!
We will have National Sharpening at the market this weekend so bring down those dull kitchen knives to get them sharpened. There’s nothing like trying to cut a fresh Farmer’s Market tomato with a dull knife.
Our kid’s craft will be making red, white & blue bracelets & necklaces. We will have corn hole & giant jenga for the whole family to play.
Vendors this week include:
Grant Family Farm
Long Hill Orchard
The Cannoli Corner
Mia’s House of Sweets
Marblehead Fish Market
Moran’s Dog Food
Story Teller Jewelry
Itty Bitty Chik
This weekend at the market Whole Foods Market Swampscott will be joining us to do a cooking demo featuring fresh local produce. Make sure you stop by their tent to see what they’re whipping up and talk with their healthy eating expert.
We would also like to give a big welcome back to Fille de Ferme who will be joining us for this week only. You may remember them from our first year at the market, they have a variety of oh-so-delicious homemade jams and jellies. Make sure you stop by and stock up!
The Board of Health will have a table at the market this week. Freshly designed, usable tote bags will be handed out and to promote mercury awareness, a free LED light bulb will be given to those who trade in a compact fluorescent bulb (no shop bulbs, supplies are limited).

First of all, we would like to thank everyone for all of their thoughtful and helpful comments on our last post about attendance this year. There are some great ideas that we are definitely going to take into consideration and we’ll discuss each and every one of them at our next meeting. Please feel free to continue giving feedback throughout the season, this is a community market and we want you to be a part of it. Likewise, if you’re interesting in volunteering, we’re always looking for new enthusiastic community members to join the committee. It’s a fun way to meet new people and participate in enriching the town of Swampscott.
One takeaway from your comments is that people often forget about the market and need reminders during the weekend. We are going to set up an email that will go out every weekend to remind you to stop by the market, highlighting events and vendors that will be there that week. If you would like to be added to our email list, just send us an email (firstname.lastname@example.org), fill out the contact form on our website, send us a facebook message or stop by our booth on Sunday to add your name. We promise not to spam you!
This weekend we have a fun beach rock painting event planned for the kids. Bring them by to get creative while you get your shopping done!
