Medfield Farmers' Market Continues to Grow

The weekly farmers' market draws vendors from around southern New England, offering some standard weekly stands as well as a variety of visiting and guest vendors.

The list of vendors at the Medfield Farmers’ Market continues to grow as the market offers fresh produce and more from weekly vendors, visiting vendors and guest vendors.

The market is held on Thursdays from 2 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. on the lawn of the First Parish Unitarian Universalist Church  at 26 North Street.  

Weekly vendors – who are all family-owned -- now include:

Visiting vendors this week include:

  • Garden Farms  of Bellingham: Homemade jellies, preserves, mustards and relishes that really offer a gourmet touch to every meal.  Specialties include whole grain maple mustard and blueberry lemon jam.  Relishes include cranberry pepper, spicy onion, spicy carrot, zucchini and Gram’s green relish.  
  • Wild Daisy Soap  of Walpole: All-natural soaps and potions, one of which is a citronella stick, non toxic and as easy to use as a bug repellent. 

Upcoming guest vendors include:

  • Annie B’s Farm  featuring beekeeper Annette Birman of Cumberland, RI (June 28 and July 5): Honey by the jar, honey candy, honey soap, hand cream and lip balm, honey comb clover, and honey straws.  Gift bags available.  

An added feature from Langwater Farm and Wards’ Berry Farm is pre-boxed produce, in addition to buying the items separately at the farmers’ market.

Langwater Farm offers a weekly ‘Organic Harvest Box’ which consists of a farm-chosen selection of in-season crops picked at the farm, packed in a box, and taken to any of their farmers’ markets (including Medfield) for customer pick-up.  A recent box one head lettuce, one pint strawberries, one bunch baby Beets, one head Broccoli, one bunch sweet turnips and two pounds zucchini. 

Each week, an email is sent out with a list of the vegetables and fruits in the Organic Harvest Box.  To order from Langwater, you reply to the email for that week and they will pack your box and bring it to your market.  The cost is $20 and can be paid by cash or credit card at pick-up.  Information can be found at www.langwaterfarm.com.  Individual items will also be available for purchase at the market.

Wards Berry farm offers a similar boxed produce program but does not deliver.  Wards’ boxes must be picked up at their farm store at 614 South Main Street, Sharon.  Information can be found at www.wardsberryfarm.com 

Each week, a non-profit community organization is invited to have a free booth stocked with their sales items and/or promotional materials.  This week’s non-profit vendor will be Medfield Green, an organization formed to help residents make more-informed and better choices for their families and environment.  

Groups and organizations interested in participating can contact Eve Potts as soon as possible at Evampotts@gmail.com or 508-359-6581.

The Medfield Farmers' Market is sponsored by the First Parish Church and is open on Thursdays through October 11.  To find out what vegetables or fruit and berries are in season, visit the vendors’ websites. You can also visit the farmers’ market on Facebook .
