It’s time once again to announce the return of the Ashmont/Peabody Square Farmers’ Market. Opening day is just 10 days away! On Friday, June 20 from 3-7pm we’ll kick off our best market season yet. Please join us for a great celebration with live music, children’s activities, and more! We’ll be having the official ribbon cutting at 4pm on the Ashmont MBTA plaza.

We have some great stuff in store for you this season. We’re welcoming back most of our vendors from last year, and we’re introducing two new vendors: Oakdale Farms and swissbäkers. We also have a new market manager, Shaquille Jones, who you may know from his amazing work in the Dorchester community. We’re so excited to have Shaq on board!

Other important things to note: We’re still accepting SNAP/EBT, and Boston Bounty Bucks will match up to $10 of produce purchases when you use your SNAP/EBT card. And this year, we’re accepting credit cards too.

You can stay up-to-date on the latest farmers’ market news via Facebook (search for Ashmont/Peabody Square Farmers’ Market) and on Twitter @AshmontFarmMkt. Like and follow the market so you don’t miss announcements of new vendors, entertainment, and more. See you on June 20 for opening day!
