Farm Fresh Produce/Stands

Will be in Boston next Sunday (31st) to Tuesday. I know it probably isn't market day, but any chance of snagging some farm fresh local produce/goods?

  1. Many all over greater Boston: and depending where you are plenty of stands in the burbs as well. Do a little googling for towns in the burbs you may be near.

    1. Since some of your other questions seem to put you in the Back Bay area, I'll give you the ones that are easy from there.

      Sunday, the SOWA marketplace in the south end has a section of farmers. and there is a small market at the Charles Hotel in Harvard Square.

      Monday - City Hall Plaza at the government center t-stop and Central Square Cambridge near the Central Square T-Stop.

      Tuedsay- Copley Square in Boston and this is one of the biggest and best markets in the area. You can even grab lunch from a couple of vendors at this one.

      If you are in the Fenway we have Marshal's Fenway Farm Stand on Boylston street.

      You can find detail for most of these at the link from StriperGuy.

        On our last day we'll have a car, so we wanted to pick up some local produce and take it home with us. Willing to drive to Cambridge and around Boston neighborhoods.

          Depending on which direction you are travelling, Allendale Farm in JP, Wilson Farm in Lexington on rt 2, there is an organic farm in Weston/Lincoln on rt 117, Hansons Farm in Framingham, just off rt 20.

            A little too far. We need to stay within the Boston/Cambridge area on that morning.

            On Tuesday afternoon you might enjoy the Lexington Farmers Market. It is a good one, not very far from Cambridge, and right near a bunch of historic places that are worth at least driving by (battle of Lexington and Concord, anyone?). There are a number of excellent produce stands, multiple good choices for bread, plus spanking-fresh fish and even a couple of meat/poultry vendors to visit if you have a cooler and will make it home by dinner time.
