National Farmers Market Week Celebration

August 5, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

This week, we are celebrating National Farmers Market Week (Aug 6 – Aug 12). We are very pleased to be joined by US Congressman Jim McGovern, MA State Senate President Karen Spilka, and MDAR Deputy Commissioner Winton Pitcoff.  Our guests are all committed to improving the issues of food insecurity, food justice and the climate impacts on MA farmers. We have planned a Market tour and an opportunity for our guests to meet AFM vendors. And don’t miss Henry the Juggler (alias Henry Lappen) who is considered armed (and legged) and dangerous. Thank you to the Ashland Cultural Council for sponsoring his appearance.
