Welcome to Melrose Farmers’ Market

We are running a safe shopping experience every Thursday, June -October, now from 12pm-5pm (please note our new hours). The market may look a lot different this year, but please be patient, wear a mask, and keep 6ft apart. No one will be allowed to shop without a mask.

  • The Melrose Farmers’ Market will be open from 12pm-5pm on Thursdays June – October. 
  • We encourage shoppers to shop in a one-way direction.
  • Majority of vendors will offer shoppers the option to pre-order and pre-pay before the market. Vendors will handle all food and bags. We strongly encourage the use of credit cards.
  • Vendors who do not require refrigeration, will have orders ready for easy pick up and expedited shopping in the pickup area
  • Volunteers will be posted to manage lines and at all turning points.
  • Market staff will adjust the process on a week-to-week basis as needed – please bear with us as we all adjust to the new normal! 

Pre-order with vendors is  here . WE STRONGLY ENCOURAGE YOU TO PRE-ORDER VEGGIES THIS MONTH WITH Oakdale Farm and Dick’s Market Garden.

Please Support us!

The market will be running on a very tight budget and is taking a hit from decreasing the amount of vendors allowed to participate in the 2020 season. MFM relies heavily on vendor fees and community support to pay expenses and operate a sound budget. If you would like to make a donation to our market to help support our operations and SNAP fund during this time, we would appreciate the support! You can make a donation of $35, $50, $100, or any amount of your choosing. Please donate here.

Attention SNAP Shoppers

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Melrose Farmers Market has made changes to the SNAP program for 2020. To ensure you can continue to use SNAP and HIP to purchase locally grown and produced foods, please note the new procedures below:  

  • You may shop with an EBT card at vendors who can process SNAP and HIP transactions
  • We are currently out of SNAP match-but can process your SNAP card to hand out Market Bucks, which can be used with other vendors.

The mission of the Melrose Farmers’ Market, a non-profit organization, is to provide all Melrose-area residents with the opportunity to buy and learn about nutritious, locally grown and produced foods.  The Market promotes local farms, organizations and businesses and builds community while contributing to a sustainable future.
