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.
