Our henna tattoo artist Kayla will be back on June 30, Kittredge Candles will be here, and there will be plenty of local produce, cheese, maple and more. The Wakefield Farmers Market brings local farm fare, specialty foods, and artisan products to Hall Park (next to Veterans Field, GPS 468 North Ave Wakefield MA) each Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. through October 13, 2018.
Featuring live music, a balloon magician, and cooking demos most weeks, and a Kid’s Activity Tent stocked with drawing materials, plus hula hoops, jump ropes, and sidewalk chalk, and special events throughout the season, it’s a great place to shop, have a picnic, play, or just hang out on the shore of Lake Quannapowitt.
Eddie Dee from right next door in Reading will be our musician for the day. With his smooth voice, clean guitar style, and repertoire of songs that will bring smiles to all ages, Eddie is a perfect match for any market day. The Wakefield Farmers Market Music Program is sponsored by The Savings Bank.
NEWSFLASH: If you missed the visit from The Traveling Poetry Emporium last Saturday, be sure to make October 6 in your calendar. We just booked them for another visit!
Suman Shah will be in the Market Kitchen Tent creating and sharing tasty and nutritious recipes from produce she gets at the market that morning. You will find links to her recipes at wfmmarketkitchen.site. Our Market Kitchen Tent and Farm/Food Education sponsor is the Wakefield Cooperative Bank.
Here are the vendors expected on June 30: A&D Books, Aaronap Cellars, Ackermann Maple Farm, Coutt’s Specialty Foods, Charlton Orchards, Deano’s Pasta, Emmetts Edibles, Farmer Dave’s, Goodies Homemade, Habibi Gourmet Food, Kelly’s Farm, Kittredge Candles, Lilac Hedge Farm, Pour Man’s Coffee, Roasted Granola, Roberto’s Seafood, Swiss Bakers, The Bread Shop, Tower Craft Beverages, Trow’s Treasures, and West River Creamery.

The market offers “Market Bucks” that can be purchased for use with vendors via credit/debit cards or SNAP/EBT, and will again be matching SNAP purchases up to $10 per visit so that everyone can afford to get fresh and healthy foods at our market. Plus, for SNAP folks: HIP is back! Use your EBT card to shop with Farmer Dave’s first, then get your additional market bucks.
