Wakefield

Farmers market concludes fifth season

The Wakefield Farmers Market recently concluded its fifth season, and organizers are pleased by the response it received this year. The outdoor market operated from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. each Saturday from June 22 to Oct. 19 at Hall Park, adjacent to Veterans Field on Lake Quannapowitt. Thirty-four vendors took part, with an average of 20 each week, according to Wendy Dennis, the market manager. She said the market averaged about 70 shoppers at any given time during the height of the season, with about 40 at other times. “It was a great season,” Dennis said. “It takes a great community to make a great market, and Wakefield is very supportive of this farmers market.” This year’s vendors included six farms selling produce, meat, and cheese, and vendors offering assorted other locally-generated goods, including fish, baked items, salsa, and root beer. There was also musical entertainment, cooking demonstrations, and information from nonprofits about their services. The market is a program of the nonprofit Wakefield Climate Action Project. Dennis said a long-term goal of the group is to open a winter farmers market in Wakefield or to create a regional one.
