Healthy Melrose Family and Wellness Fair-Pop-Up Market

 

Thank you for attending our most recent pop-up market at the Melrose Family YMCA. We had another nice turnout of about 600 shoppers all supporting our local farms and businesses.

Our last pop-up market, until Summer begins, is in partnership with the Healthy Melrose Family Wellness & Fitness event on Saturday May 12, 2018 from 10 – 1:30pm. They are celebrating their 10th year and asked us to host a pop-up market. We are so excited to be bringing farms, fish, eggs, meat, dairy and prepared foods to this awesome, healthy event!

Check out all our vendors! We have one veggie farm, Farmer Dave’s, and other amazing farms and prepared food vendors are The Bread Shop, Pure Pastry, Deano’s PastaMuddy River Herbals, Laszlo Family Farm, Moonlight FarmSeven Hills Pasta Co., Roberto’s Seafood, Smith’s Country Cheese, Koshari Mama,  Jennifer Lee’s Bakery, and Beverly Bees. Sasquatch Woodworks, Brooklyn James and Ugly Baby Soap Company LC will be joining us as well as.  City Compost will be providing all the composting for the Wellness Fair and can speak with people about their take-away composting services. Bring your washed sheets, towels, pillow cases and blankets for the Collar Club to donate to the MSPCA. Pick up something tasty from our creative food demo chef, Suman Shah, from Fork on a Road.  She will show you how farm fresh food and certain spices can make an amazing salad dressing, veggie side dish, or even a soup!

We have encouraged all of our vendors to be set up to take credit/debit and cash, however there will still be a few that accept cash or check only. 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 we are matching SNAP up to $5 at the market table. Please note, HIP is currently on hold until July 1.
