The Harvard Allston Farmers' Market returns for its sixth year to the Barry's Corner area of Allston on Friday, June 14th! We are excited to announce our new location at 168 Western Avenue, the home of Swissbakers. The cafe will be open with freshly baked bread and treats, and we hear they are installing a playground for kids! Swissbakers participated in the market in 2010 and they are excited to return as a participant this year. This coming Friday, we'll have prizes, raffles, and more!
In addition to Swissbakers, Silvia Farms' vegetables and produce, Red's Best Seafood, Aruna's Granola, and Sweet Lydia's marshmallows will return, with Soluna Garden Farms and other new vendors to come! (If you know anyone interested in becoming a vendor at the market, we're still taking applications!) The market will also have experts from CommonWheels Bike Co-Op on site to teach about bike safety and maintenance. The market plans to have a number of regular activities, music performances and other special events, including a Seafood Throwdown, sustainability workshops, and the annual October Treat and Greet Festival. We are proud to accept SNAP/EBT cards, offer Boston Bounty Bucks, and accept credit cards.
