Celebrating 10 years of local food for our community
Welcome to our 10th season!Welcome to the Harvard Farmers Market, the largest and friendliest outdoor market in Central Mass! We invite you to join us at this amazing community gathering spot, where you can enjoy nutritious locally grown produce, breads, pastries, cookies, roasted coffee, cheeses, meats, honey, jams, soaps, and more. Experience historic Harvard, listen to local bands, meet guest chefs, bring the dog, the kids, your neighbors and parents. We hope to see you Saturday mornings throughout the 2016 Season!
Our MissionThe Harvard Farmers Market is a non-profit farmers market, one of the few in the State of Massachusetts. We are an outdoor food-based market, as well as a venue for education and outreach to our local community about the many benefits of locally farmed food. The mission of the HFM is to encourage and support local, small-scale farmers, gardeners and local food producers by providing a marketing opportunity to sell produce, food, and farm-related items directly to consumers.
Our InitiativesThe HFM not only provides local nutritious produce to our community, but also educates and helps our neighbors in many incredible ways: Getting soup to senior citizens throughout the winter with our Soup to Seniors program; feeding the elderly and families-in-need with our Farm to Friend initiative; founding the community Seed Library; reviving the town's century-old Canning Club; high school scholarships; and so much more! Please contact us for more information on helping or joining our Initiatives.
Special Days!The HFM is more than just a place to pick up groceries for dinner. Check out our ongoing events throughout the season! Join us us on "All Things Garden" day, or Bike-to-the-Market Day, (and donate your old bikes to Bikes Not Bomb). Meet adoptable dogs from Great Dog Rescue New England. Learn about keeping backyard chickens. Memories abound at the HFM indeed!
Come Join us in our kitchen!To celebrate 10 fabulous seasons, the HFM is creating a community cookbook. We welcome your recipes to be forever imprinted in our collective cookbook.
