FRAMINGHAM – The 2022 season of the Framingham Farmers Market gets underway Thursday, June 23 on the Centre Common on Edgell Road.
For 2022, the market is transitioning to City of Framingham ownership and management, and features an important shift in timing to be late afternoon 3 to 7 p.m., to better match consumer requests.
The program has been expanded including invitations to hundreds of vendors across Eastern Massachusetts to join this program. Mayor Charlie Sisitsky has requested the market be free to participate in, opening up unique opportunities for small businesses from food and non-food categories to take part.
As part of the weekly program several food trucks will be joining the market as well, some alternating weeks.
The opening week could feature as many as 25-28 vendors with anchor farms Heavens Harvest Certified Organic from New Braintree, and Wild Robbins Farm from Sherborn.
First week food vendors (pending their Board of Health certifications) include Uncle Joeys cannoli, Breadboard Bakery, Sherman & Cherie’s Breezy Bees, Birch Tree Bread Company, Reis Bakery, AZ Nordic Kvass, Lost Art Cultured Foods (organic sauerkraut), Little Maven Lemonade, Great Harvest Bread Co and FSG Baking. Participating food trucks include Cousins Maine Lobster (coming every other week with start date not yet determined), Kona Ice of Framingham/Natick, Boston Events, Velma’s Kettle Corn and Thee Taco Dude (start date not yet determined but might be this week).
The non-food and services category includes a great cross section including Organic Finish (skin and hair care products), Usborne Books and More, Dee Drops (hand strung crystal jewelry), Pure Haven (skin and body care, pet care products), Melody Blue (goat milk soap), Tasty Harvest (gardening coach), The Serendipity Place (crystals, rocks and minerals), and Rachel Walters Collection (women’s upscale handmade clothing). Service organizations include Framingham Public Library’s Bookmobile, League of Women Voters (voter registration), Atlantis Dental (free screenings) and the Danforth Art Museum.
The list will vary by week and will be published a couple of days in advance on both the website, the Facebook page and on the Source news outlet.
The City has introduced a new web page https://www.framinghamma.gov/FarmersMarket that will include expanded information on the many vendors in the coming weeks.
The Market is a rain or shine event but may be cancelled if weather is stormy.
Parking is available at a number of parking lots nearby and will be indicated by Farmers Market Parking directional signs. For questions please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
