*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.
You no longer need a reservation to shop the Melrose Farmers’ Market. We are still operating with a one way entrance and exit, and maintaining 6ft social distancing, but reservations are no longer required. Thank you for your patience while we figure this new way of shopping out.
