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, 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, Muddy River Herbals, Laszlo Family Farm, Seven Hills Pasta Co., Roberto’s Seafood, Smith’s Country Cheese, Jennifer Lee’s Bakery, and Beverly Bees. Sasquatch Woodworks 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.

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 only accept cash or check. 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.
