MassDOT's annual Farmer’s Market Program returns this weekend and continues through fall 2010. 

Local Farmers are invited to take advantage of free vending space at the state’s eighteen highway service plazas to sell their home-grown produce and made-in-Massachusetts products.

The first weekend schedule is as follows:

East & West Charlton, I-90: Friday, Saturday, Sunday, May 21-23, 9am-4pm

Framingham, I-90, Friday, Saturday, Sunday, May 21-23, 9am-4pm

The Farmers Market program has been a popular customer service for the last ten years on the 11 Massachusetts Turnpike service plazas and this year MassDOT will expand the Farmers Market program to include all 18 service plazas on state highways.

Farmers can sell their goods as long as they do not compete with the businesses that operate within the service plazas.  Local farmers or customers who want more information are asked to contact program coordinator Dave Fenton at dave.fenton@state.ma.us or 413‑572‑3171.
