We faced many challenges this summer as a market and as a community, and we want to say a heartfelt thank you to all of our customers and vendors who made summer 2020 a great season at the Maynard Farmers Market. We plan to continue our mission to bring fresh food to our community next summer, and we hope to see you all then! Check back in spring 2021 for new schedules, new vendors, and all our other news.
Here’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!
Good 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.
The 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 firstname.lastname@example.org. We have many dates still available!
The Maynard Farmers’ Market needs a part-time Market Manager this summer. It’s easy and fun. This is a paid position, about 7 hours of work per week. You need to be able to transport supplies, like our popup tents, set up the Market booth, and assist vendors with checking in and setting up as needed before the market opens. Please email us for more details! We’d like to have someone hired by May, 2020: email@example.com
