Get fresh veggies in Lynn all winter long

The Food Project, a nonprofit that has offered an outdoor Central Square Farmers Market during the summer and fall, has now added a winter market. In its opening season, which began this month, the winter market will operate from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. every third Saturday of the month through May 19 in the Lynn YMCA, 20 Neptune Blvd. The market includes several produce vendors and a fish vendor, along with a craft/jewelry stand and a coffee shop. The winter market will accept federal Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP, benefits.
