Farmers' Market Starts Tomorrow
Lexington Farmers' Market kicks off summer season
The Lexington Farmers' Market is opening for the season tomorrow at 2 p.m.
More than 32 farmers and vendors and four artisans each week will be at the market, held Tuesdays, rain or shine, from 2 to 6:30 p.m. at the corner of Massachusetts Avenue and Woburn Street.
A long list of goods and produce for sale includes seasonal fruits and vegetables, dairy products, meat and fish, baked goods, relishes and salsas, maple syrup, homemade pastas, Egyptian and Lebanese foods, beeswax products, herbs, gelato and sorbet, teas and more.
Artisans will be selling a variety of unique jewelry, ceramics, mosaic picture frames, fabric belts and totes, stationery and more. Events and activities are also planned weekly, and those with Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program cards can use them at the market, doubling their dollars on produce.
