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.

Consider joining the walk or making a donation to Project Bread to help support programs across the state (including support of the Ashmont Farmers Market) that ensure everyone, regardless of income, can access nutritious food all year long!
