It's Massachusetts Farmers' Market Week!



Here at the Boston Food Swap, we are super excited because the state has proclaimed this week, August 21st - 27th, Massachusetts Farmers' Market Week!

There are over 240 farmers' markets in the Commonwealth, more than double since 2005, according to Department of Agricultural Resources (DAR) Commissioner Scott J. Soares. The proclamation states that markets "create a festive open air setting which enhances community spirit and civic pride by offering a natural place for community gathering,” and “help heighten public awareness of the agricultural diversity of Massachusetts and the benefits of buying local and preserving open space." We couldn't agree more! Read the proclamation here.

The official kickoff will be Monday, August 22 during the 27th Annual Tomato Contest at the City Hall Plaza Farmers' Market.
