Did you know that local Farmer's Markets are culturally significant institution beloved by generations of Americans before us? Dating back to 1730's in Lancaster, PA, locals would meet together at a designated lot in the center of town. Farmer's Markets have always played an important social role of sharing culturally shaped food practices and traditions, from Resident to Resident, Farmer to Resident, and vice versa. Come Meet us at the Market! Shop for fresh fruits and veggies, support local full-time farmers, and get an opportunity to hang-out with neighbors, enjoying music, playing games, and learning more about events happening in the community, all conveniently located on the Ashmont MBTA Plaza!

    "Meet Me at the Market" - The Evolution of a Farmers Market
    What better time than National Farmers Market Week to explore the history of farmers markets in the United States? Farmers markets are a critical ingredient to our nation's food system, and date back to 1730 in Lancaster, Pennsylvania in the United States. "Meet me at the Market" has for decades been a phrase commonly heard by Lancaster citizens.

Why Shop at the Farmers Market? Being Fresh I...

Why Shop at the Farmers Market? Being Fresh Is a Good Thing! – While store bought fruits and veggies are usually seven to fourteen days old by the time they hit grocery store shelves, at the farmers market you’re buying fruits and veggies picked just hours earlier. This means you can expect produce that stays fresher, longer. Selling at the farmers market, farmers can choose flavor over shelf-life.

    Farmers Market
    Farmers Markets are special! So why buy your groceries at the farmers market instead of the grocery store? Fresh - While store bought fruits and veggies are usually seven to fourteen days old by the time they hit grocery store shelves, at the farmers market you're buying fruits and veggies picked just hours earlier.
