The market is sponsored and organized by Sustainable Winchester. Throughout the farmers market season, attendees will have the opportunity to buy nutritious, flavorful produce and homemade products, gather with friends and neighbors, watch local entertainers, and learn about the benefits of supporting local sustainable agriculture and the local economy. Attending the farmers market is not only an enjoyable community activity but also a practice that contributes to a sustainable future.
The market will take place rain or shine throughout the season. Please try to ride your bike or walk to the market if you can, or park your car in the Aberjona or Shore Road lot to leave parking spaces surrounding the common open for short-term parking near downtown businesses. The Aberjona lot, which runs along the commuter rail track across from the post office, is free on weekends, including the permit spaces in the end of the lot.
Remember to bring your own shopping bags to the market if you can.
You can buy Winchester Farmers Market gift certificates for your friends and family (or for yourself!) or consider making a donation to support the farmers market, which is largely a volunteeer effort supported by grants and donations.
