All of our vendors at the Melrose Farmers’ Market will take credit card. For items that are stored cold, like cheese, you still have to come into the market to pick up these items. We haven’t yet figured out how we will operate the pick up area and store cold items. So please be patient with us. If you pre-order and pre-pay from Boston Smoked Fish, Smith’s Country Cheese, Del Sur Empanadas, Koshari Mama, Deano’s Pasta you will have to reserve a spot to shop, which you can do here.
