Braintree Farmers Market 2017

The Braintree Farmers Market is currently being organized for the 2017 season.  We’re looking forward to providing our community with another abundant harvest of local foods and farms.  Our committee is in the midst of signing on our past vendors and recruiting new ones that we think will add more diversity to our high quality local food products.  If you think you would like to become a vendor please fill out our Potential Vendor Survey with your information.  If the committee determines that your products would make a good fit you will be contacted and sent our applications.  The market only allows happy vendors with a sense of humor.  NO crafts.  The BFM has already reached it’s capacity for produce growers but will still consider artisan foods made locally.  All prepared foods must be made in commercially permitted kitchens, vendors must present proof of insurance for your business, and obtain a temporary food permit from the Braintree Board of Health.  The Town of Braintree has approved Farmer Wine tasting at the market and we are presently seeking farmer wine vendors to join our lineup.

Volunteers are the reason for the success behind the Braintree Farmers Market. We’re always looking for folks to help out at the market with specific tasks on market days and special events.  If you think you have a unique talent that would compliment the farmers market, or would simply like to pitch in, we would love to hear from you.  Join our dynamic and devoted team that brings local farms and foods to Braintree with a flair for environmental issues. Questions or comments? Email Pepe at secretarypepe@netscape.net.

The Braintree Farmers Market hosts one Community Tent which includes a table and chairs, available every week for the use by a local, non-profit, community organization (free of charge).  The market is currently organizing the Community Tent for the 2017 season.  Please review the Rules and if you think your organization may benefit from this opportunity please contact donnai@braintreefarmersmarket.org  Space is limited.

The Braintree Farmer’s Market would like to thank the following companies and organizations that help the BFM through their generous support. Please be sure to return the favor by thanking them with your patronage.

On Opening Day/June 17th Braintree Cooperative Bank will be handing out complimentary herb seedling plants grown by Second Nature Farm while supplies last.  Liberty Bay Credit Union has made a pledge to our Matching Funds EBT Program to help make our healthy foods accessible to all income levels.  For every $15 of EBT tokens purchased the market matches it with another $15.  Liberty Bay Credit Union has been a generous sponsor for the Annual Thanksgiving Holiday Market.  A YUGE Thanks to Braintree Electric Light Department for sponsoring the Braintree Farmers Market Local Musicians Series for the 2017 season.  BELD also donated the events tent to the Braintree Farmers Market that is used for our Special Events.

Thanks to EVERYONE who supports the Braintree Farmers Market and stay tuned!
