The Dedham Farmers Market will be opening Wednesday June 16 for the 2010 season and will run every Wednesday thereafter rain or shine through October 27.
We will be welcoming back our produce vendors Freitas Farm, MacArthur Farm, Neighborhood Farm (also featuring bread by Clear Flour), and Spring Brook Farm (that also carries eggs, meat, bread and baked goods). Our fish vendor, Jordan Bros. Seafood, will be featuring local seafood and shellfish and now North Atlantic salmon. Honey, maple syrup and jellies are available from Lemon Thyme Farm. For potted vegetables and herbs, visit Ferrara Greenhouse.
New additions to the market are Chestnut Farms with a range of grass-fed meats (and cheese from Wineridge Farm). C&C Lobster will bring fresh lobster and Nantucket Wild, smoked salmon and bluefish. Home-made pasta will be available from Fior D'Italia together with pasta sauce and mozzarella. Try cow's cheese and veal cuts from Foxboro' Cheese Co.
For much of the summer, we will host Eric & Jack's Pirate Lemonade Stand. The 2 boys will be donating their profits to the Animal Rescue League's Pine Ridge Animal Center.
Thanks in part to a grant from the Mass Dept of Agricultural Resources and the Dept of Transitional Assistance, we will be accepting SNAP at the market. Under our Dedham Dollars program, individuals will receive a free dollar for every dollar in SNAP benefits spent at the market (up to a cap of $10 per person).
Each market day will feature special events including entertainment, education, and kids activities. Park your little ones at our weekly craft table, generously donated by the Dedham Land Trust.
