Massachusetts Farmers Markets

For everyone looking for the freshest produce, you should really check out your local farmer's market and help support local business and family farmers. You can find a list of farmer's markets near you here, thanks to the Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources. Many farmer's markets extend until mid October, some even into December.

If you go soon, you'll likely hit the peak of the fall harvest. Pumpkins, squash, potatoes, corn, pears, apples and more! Even after the farmer's markets are done for the season you can still support some farmers by buying local honey, or buying your Christmas tree from a local tree farm(If you celebrate Christmas that is). There are a lot of ways to strengthen community relationships and support the local economy, you just have to look.
