Imagine a gentle breeze, you’re strolling through a farmer’s market on a sunny Saturday morning; heirloom tomatoes, local honey and fresh-cut flowers at every turn. Children laughing, adults walking along with their dogs, music playing… Sounds like a scene from a movie, right?
Anyone in Lawrence can enjoy that experience on Saturday mornings or Tuesday afternoons during the growing season. Enjoy local vegetables, fruit, honey, meat, flowers, crafts and music. The market at 824 New Hampshire Street runs from April 14 to August 25, 7 a.m. to 11 a.m., and September 1-November 17, 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. There is also a Tuesday Market from May 8 to October 23, 4 to 6 p.m. at 725 Vermont Street (parking garage by Lawrence Public Library).
Locally grown, fresh, organic food along with the sense of community found in a farmer’s market is appealing on several levels. You can eat healthier, support local farmers, enjoy time with family and friends, and find seasonal produce that’s just bound to taste better. Plus, the local farmers and growers will take time to chat with you about this year’s harvest and offer suggestions or recipes. We recommend a visit to the Farmer’s Market soon. We think you’ll walk away with great memories of your time there.
