Farmers' Market, Charlton East, September 2014

Farmers’ Market, Charlton East, September 2014

This year’s annual Massachusetts Department of Transportation Farmers’ Market Program will begin on Friday, May 15, through the fall. We invite all Massachusetts’ farmers to sell their freshly grown fruits and vegetables as well as their made in Massachusetts food products, on a first-come, first-serve basis.

The Farmers’ Market Program offers our Massachusetts’ farmers a unique opportunity to sell and market their wonderful locally grown products. Farmers can sell their goods as long as they do not compete with the service area stores and restaurants.

The Farmers’ Market program has been very popular for more than a decade on I-90. MassDOT again will also offer farmers a market opportunity at all 18 state service plazas, including the original 11 along I-90 and seven in additional locations listed below.

The service areas available for the Farmers’ Market are located in Lee (east/west), Blandford (east/west), Ludlow (east/west), Charlton (east/west), Westboro (west), Framingham (west) and Natick (east), Interstate 95 in Newton, Lexington, Route 128 in Beverly, Route 24 locations (north/south ) in Bridgewater, Route 3 in Plymouth and Route 6 in Barnstable.

If you are interested in participating in this year’s program or have any questions, please contact David Fenton at 413-572-3171 or dave.fenton@state.ma.us.
