Looking to buy locally grown food, visit the Cambridge Main Street Farmers’ Market! Serving the local economy by facilitating start-ups and furthering existing business expansions, the farmers’ market is a great place for the community to reconnect with local farmers and small businesses.
Market Manager Allison Penn said, “This year we have over 20 vendors with a variety of products from traditional fruit and vegetable produce to plants, meat, crabs, wine, baked goods, honey, soaps, cremes, baskets, wooden crafts and jewelry.” The market attracts many visitors each season that small- to medium-sized farming businesses would have trouble gaining access to without the venue.
The market began in year 2000 and has expanded from the grounds at Sailwinds to its current location at Long Wharf. Strong community partnerships, good management and community support are part of the “local food for local people” experience when visiting the market.
The Cambridge Main Street Farmers’ Market is held every Thursday from 3-6 PM through October 16. For more information, visit their website at www.cambridgemainstreet.com, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or follow them on Facebook.
