Because of COVID-19 we have decided to close our winter markets. However, you can still access fresh foods from our vendors. There’s a list of vendors delivering to Melrose here.
We have some updates regarding SNAP match for SNAP shoppers. The Melrose Farmers’ Market recognizes the need for access to healthy and fresh, locally grown/sourced foods, especially for those at greater risk of food insecurity. The Melrose Farmers’ Market will contribute $10 per week toward your SNAP purchase. For example, instead of only having $10 to spend, now you have $20. We are piloting this with Roberto’s Seafood and Oakdale Farm. You just have to use your EBT card when Oakdale delivers your order (they also have HIP) and when picking up at Roberto’s Seafood, show your EBT card for added spending. We will be offering this SNAP match until the start of our summer market. We are reimbursing Oakdale and Roberto’s so you don’t have to worry about how we will give you the match.
Additionally, we are trying to create a food insecurity fund for the Melrose area and surrounding communities where the $ goes straight to supporting those that need help accessing fresh locally sourced foods from our vendors. We will share how you can donate shortly!
To receive an order form weekly from Oakdale Farm, please email Laura at firstname.lastname@example.org . This weeks form has to be filled out by the end of the day today (Monday ). Deliveries are every Friday.
For pre-ordering and Roberto’s hours in Melrose (Saturdays, 1-3 pm at Bowden Park) please email Bob at email@example.com or call 617.529.5701.
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.
