What to expect this Sunday, February 11

What’s better than flowers and chocolate for your honey? The many gifts and fresh goods you can purchase at our first of three pop-up farmer’s markets this weekend! February, 11, 10am -1pm at Windsor at Oak Grove in Melrose, 12 Island Hill Ave. The market will take place in their clubhouse and media rooms. Not sure where Windsor at Oak Grove is? Follow the Tomato in the picture below. We have the okay from the Melrose Police to park on both sides of Main Street around Windsor at Oak Grove, but please mind the hydrants and intersections. YMCA Childcare will also allow parking in their front and back lots, however, please do not park in front of Hunt’s photo, as these spots are for their customers. Pine Banks will also have parking available at their Banks Place entrance.


We’ll have Oakdale Farm bringing apples, beets and other winter herbs and vegetables. Other amazing food vendors are The Bread Shop, Aaronap Cellars, Pure Pastry, Muddy River Herbals, Laszlo Family Farm, Seven Hills Pasta Co., Roberto’s Seafood, Foxboro Cheese, Shady Pine Farm, Mr. Tamole, La Qchara, Jitter’s Cafe.

These fantastic artisan, crafters and personal care products: EPOCA, Sweet as JAM, Brooklyn James, Greek Girl Soap, Sasquatch Woodworks, Castle Corner Creations, and Clothes For A Cause Inc (where you can buy your 02176 knitted hats to support Housing Families).

City Compost will be joining us to speak with people about their composting services. We have encouraged all of our vendors to be set up to take credit/debit and cash. We are piloting with using market bucks for our SNAP shoppers only. But our vendors will still accept market bucks that you may still have in your wallet! For SNAP shoppers, Oakdale will be bringing their HIP terminal and we are matching SNAP up to $5 at the market table.

We look forward to seeing you this Sunday!
