Market Map Preview: Follow the Paths

MarketMapHere’s a schematic map of our new market layout. The new, concentrated market is on the West side of the Mill & Main parking lot. It’s smaller than last year, with defined entrance and exit areas and a one-way shopping path. Vendors will handle merchandise, but feel free to bring your own shopping bag for completed purchases. We look forward to seeing you on June 27th, opening day!

We’re Opening June 27, and Making the Market Safe for Everyone

MktLadyGrphcGood news! The Maynard Farmer’s Market opens for the 2020 season on Saturday, June 27th–right on time. To  provide a safe market experience for everyone–shoppers, farmers, and our hardworking volunteers–we’ll have new rules in place, referencing local and state health guidelines as we reopen. Keep checking this website for more details, and take a look at the shopping guidelines from Massachusetts Farmers Markets.

2020 Artisan Lineup

ArtisansWebPhotoThe Farmers’ Market is well known for fresh local produce and artisan-made food, but our craftspeople and artisans really make the market a unique shopping experience. Many of our favorite artisans are back for the 2020 season, including Brookfield Candle Co., Jennifer’s Handmade Soaps, and Everything Alpaca. We also have new craftspeople to show off this summer, like Chris Brainard and Leah DiFrancesco. Leah’s handpainted greeting cards—that’s the “jeweltone” selection—are pictured next to Goldie’s Alpaca scarves, hats, and socks. We’re welcoming Cementasaurs garden dinosaurs again, as well as Julie James Repurposed Creations’ wood kitchen and decorative items.

Want to join us this year as an artist, artisan, or craftsperson? Please email cvw198@yahoo.com. We have many dates still available!
