The Ashmont Farmers Market occurs each year on the MBTA Plaza in #PeabodySquare. Our #FarmersMarket is one of the amazing programs of Greater Ashmont Main Street, this crowdfunding campaign to revitalize Peabody Square is another. This the Ashmont Farmers Market brought hundreds of people together each week to shop, meet neighbors, and even get in a workout during the #FitFridays programming by Dorchester YMCA and 4 Corners Yoga + Wellness. This campaign will help make our square even better. Watch the video and consider donating to help make tangible improvements to the public space that connects our neighborhood!
