Local Farmers Market This Summer in Boston

Visiting local Farmers Markets (especially in Summer) is an easy and budget-friendly way to save money on produce, especially if there’s near your home or workplace. You are also supporting local farmers and the local economy in Boston. A great way to save money, support others in our community, and eat healthy and delicious produce!

Here’s some Local Farmers Markets in Boston to visit throughout the Summer:

city hall farmers market


City Hall Plaza Public Market: Every Monday & Wednesday from 11am-6pm. (Open now through November)

Copley Square Farmers Market: Tuesdays and Fridays 11am-6pm. (Open now through 11/26/13)

Central Square in Cambridge: Mondays from 12-6pm. (Open now through 11/25/13)

Davis Square in Somerville: Wednesdays from 12-6pm. (Open now through 11/27/13)

Dewey Square Public Market: Every Tuesday & Thursday from 11:30am-6:30pm. (Open now through 11/26/13)

According to the City of Boston website, there are over 20 farmers markets in Boston this year with that number increasingly growing. To see the list of all local markets, please visit the City of Boston Farmers Markets page here or by zip code throughout Massachusetts (and country) at Local Harvest here.

Also, if you are very tight on cash and need some assistance in affording vegetables, you may want to check out Fair Foods which helps low income families in Boston. For $2 a bag you can grab an array of healthy produce, and you can buy multiple bags if you need too.
