ALPACAS? Yes, Sunday at the ABFM!

Sunny Knoll Farm Alpacas (a small family farm in Hubbardston) is today's Artisan, and guess who they're bringing to market? Yep, a couple of their adorable herd of Vicugna pacos. Fun alpaca facts: they are related to camels, can projectile "spit" when feeling threatened, and sometimes make a humming sound when happy and content. See more on Sunny Knoll below, and check out these cuties at market!

SNAP at the ABFM

The ABFM welcomes the use of SNAP benefits to buy fresh, local foods at the market. Each season we designate funds with which to "match" up to the first $10 spent at market by SNAP users. We value the ability to help everyone get access to real, fresh food. Please help us get out the word about SNAP at market — tell everyone you know! And visit the website SNAP page or the ABFM stall at market for details.
