Market Goers

Lots of fresh, just-picked, local fruits and veggies!

The market ranges from 900 to 1200 visitors per week, including families, the elderly and SNAP shoppers. Visitors can shop for fresh, in-season vegetables, fruits, meats, fish, bread, and food grown and produced by Massachusetts farms, bakeries, and other food producers. Due to the Covid pandemic we will not be offering events, entertainment or crafters in 2020.

Market Money only available to SNAP shoppers

When you come to the farmers market, all our vendors will take credit/debit card, however, you can also use cash, credit cards, debit cards, SNAP cards, Shop Melrose gift checks, WIC coupons, and Senior Farmers’ Market Coupons. Market Money is currently only available for SNAP match. There are changes to the SNAP program during the 2020 market season. Instead of a weekly SNAP match, on June 4, 2020, you may request ‘market script’ in the amount of $40 (equal to 4 weeks at $10 each). Market Table staff will only be available on that day to distribute the market script. This script can be used at any vendor who sells food that meets SNAP requirements.
