FRAMINGHAM – Today, June 14, was the opening of the Framingham Farmers’ Market for the 2018 season.
The popcorn from Velma’s Kettle Corn was popping, lemons were being squeezed at When Life Gives Your Lemons for fresh lemonade, and shoppers were selecting fresh produce from Hanson’s Farm and Silva’s Farm, and homemade candles and other artisan crafted products this afternoon.
The market is open on Thursday from noon to 5:30 p.m. through mid-October at the Framingham Centre Common.
New this year to the market were delicious freshly baked croissants filled with spinach or cheese and bacon from Dulce D Leche in Framingham. They were $4 each.
Also new this year was a variety of cheeses from the Foxboro Cheese Company and the Little White Goat Dairy.
Another new vendor was Framingham small business The Serendipity Place, with crystals and rocks. The 937B Worcester road store is located within walking distance to the Common, and offers Reiki, workshops, psychic readings, classes, and spirit parties, along with its store products.
