I did think it was sort of weird to charge admission, however, I really like Wards. Their organic buying club offers decent produce at fair prices. Their sandwiches and smoothies are great.... [more]

Terrible crap. Very expensive, most food is from a supermarket (all the meat is Boar's Head?!) and simply marked up. Not organic, and produce is topped up with items flown in from California, etc.... [more]

Ok, let's re-think this based on Wards reply:

The admission fee is to play in the playground (swings, slide) climb on the haystack, have lunch outdoors at picnic tables(instead of inside the store where there are tables since they have a sandwich counter), all that was free before and is free at virtually every other playground and farm in Massachusetts....
