Springfield BID, Downtown Farmers’ Market
May 17 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 11:00am on Friday, repeating until June 28, 2019
The Downtown Farmers’ Market is entering its 4th Season at a new location this year, Court Square!
This year the market will feature most of last year’s favorite vendors as well as some great new vendors, who will add a whole new level of variety for patrons. Some exciting new products to look for include smoked cheeses from VT, maple syrup, farm fresh pork, chicken, eggs, and hand-fed beef and bison. This year the South End Specialties tent will feature a different South End food business each week. There will also be homemade pies and other sweets as well as home-baked artisanal breads, home-canned jams, jellies & relishes, delicious hot fresh buttered popcorn, juices, and of course herbs, sprouts, flowers and locally grown produce.
Throughout the season the Springfield Business Improvement District, which produces the farmers market, will be hosting special themed events, including cooking demos, live music and giveaways.
Developed to provide a place for local growers, producers, artisans and crafters to sell their goods directly to consumers in the downtown community, to educate consumers about local farming and seasonal eating, to encourage and promote the use of locally grown farm products and to enhance quality of life in Springfield by providing a community activity that fosters social gathering and interaction.
