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 2015 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 on-going events throughout the season! Join us for Bike-to-the-Market Day, and donate your old bikes to Bikes Not Bombs. Bring the kids for Kids' Day, with kids' music and storytelling; let them be a farmer for a day and sell their produce from their backyard garden, or win a ribbon during our Get Growing contest. Adopt a dog from the New England Great Dog Rescue.
Watch a sheep hand-sheared. Memories abound at the HFM indeed!
