Summer Farmers Markets From Cambridge to Wayland

said on July 1st, 2011 filed under: Community Information

FruitFrom Cambridge to Wayland, between 2 rivers, fresh organic produce and the opportunity to support our local farmers is plentiful.  What could be better then fresh vegetables on a summer day or arts and crafts from local artisans? 

The Local Farmers Markets Between 2 Rivers

Most of the markets include vendors that also sell fresh fish, breads, cheeses, meat, honey, eggs and jams.  Some have local artisans selling their crafts and the Waltham farmers market even has a concert series.

In Cambridge you can find a different farmers market to cover every day of the week.  The Wayland farmers market has vendors that allow you to preorder if you are pressed for time.
