Farmers' Market Ribbon Cutting 7/6/2012 (Copyright Lianne Ames)

The Ashmont/Peabody Square Farmers’ Market kicked off its fourth season Friday, July 6.  Our Grand Opening Celebration, featuring the Irie Roots Band, and face painter Lucia Colombaro drew a record breaking crowd of over 700 people! For photos of opening day, please visit our Facebook page.

The market will run every Friday through October 19, 3-7 p.m., on Ashmont Station Plaza, at the corner of Ashmont Street and Dorchester Ave..

We welcome two fantastic new vendors this year, Tavolo Ristorante and
Red’s Best Seafood. We’re also glad to welcome back our returing vendors: Spring Brook Farm of Littleton, family-owned for 299 years and offering fruits, veggies, eggs, honey, preserves, and more; Langwater Farm of North Easton, certified organic and featuring “Community Supported Agriculture” – full or half shares, plus a new weekly option through their “Organic Harvest Box;” Dorchester Arts Collaborative, with new artists each week; and Cedar Grove Gardens, featuring fresh flowers, plants and gifts.  In addition, the Boston Cyclists’ Union will join us July 27, August 31, and September 28.

Many thanks to our host the MBTA, market sponsor Eastern Bank, and district sponsors Trinity Financial, CWC Builders, WinnResidential, Boston Main Streets, and the Boston Main Streets Foundation.
