Happy New Year! Thank you for a successful 2020 season. We couldn’t have done it without you, and are so grateful for all the ways our community came together to make our market season successful during a global pandemic.
Due to the capricious nature of winter weather and the challenges of securing adequate and safe inside space in COVID-19 times, we will not be holding any winter markets in early 2021. We will miss our monthly opportunities to connect with you and our vendors, and to bring home loads of goodies. We can’t wait for warmer weather to allow such opportunities again!
In the meantime, we want to make sure you are aware of two ways you can still access fresh, local food RIGHT NOW:
Roberto’s Seafood will be setting up a pop-up market most Thursdays from 2-4 pm, next to the Cedar Park Commuter Rail. You can pre-order by the Wednesday before through Facebook Messenger, or by contacting email@example.com or 617-529-5701. If you have an EBT card, the Melrose Farmer’s Market will provide a weekly $5 match to help with your fish purchase each week. Just ask Bob and he’ll take $5 off your order!
Oakdale Farms in Rehobeth is doing weekly home deliveries! They will be in Melrose, Malden, Wakefield, Somerville and Medford every Friday. Oakdale accepts credit cards and EBT cards. You can use your HIP/SNAP benefit directly through them, and if you do so, the Melrose Farmer’s Market will provide an additional $5 match to help with your produce purchase each week! In addition to winter produce, you can purchase farm fresh eggs, maple syrup, honey, baked goods and many other yummies. Deliveries are due by Monday at 9 pm, and can be made through their website:
Please support these local vendors throughout the winter months, and check back regularly for updates on other ways we hope to help bring fresh, local, healthy and delicious food to your home!
We are proud to be able to provide a “double” SNAP match at this final market of 2020.
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.
