Coming Soon: the Ashland Farmers Market

My lovely wife, despite being 9 months pregnant, has been hard at work organizing the inagural season of the Ashland Farmers Market. It sounds like it's going to be a great opportunity to buy local! Details from the Ashland Tab:
The Ashland Farmers Market will officially open on Saturday, June 9, and will be open on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. until Oct. 20. The market will be set up at 125 Front St., on the grassy stretch of land diagonally across the street from the library.
The market is a “grow it or make it” market. Among the produce vendors that will be participating are Sunshine Farm, in Sherborn, Arcadian Farm, in Holliston, and Long Life Farm, in Hopkinton. A list of participating vendors will be available online at
Besides produce, there will be meat, fish, honey and bakery vendors. Organizers have also lined up specialty and artisan vendors, and there are plans for a children’s tent, a community organization tent and entertainment.
The goal is to provide a fun place where families can purchase locally grown, fresh produce, grass-fed beef, and other healthy food choices. People are encouraged to sign up at to be included in email blasts for vendor specials and other updates.
