10am–1pm 


BIKE-TO-MARKET DAY
AKA: FOSSIL-FUEL-FREE SHOPPING DAY!

This Sunday, get on those bicycles, skateboards, and scooters to come to ABFM free of fossil fuels! The ABFM will offer to each of the first 50 riders of such gizmos $2 in ABFM Market Moolah to be spent at market — on Sunday only! Come to the ABFM table to show us your carbon emissions–free transport, and then park it at one of the bike racks in front of the West Acton Citizens' Library. (And please, whenever you ride your bike to market, park it at a bike rack rather than on Pearl Street.) Bike-to-Market Day: a win-win-win proposition, for you, for the environment, and for local farmers and producers! 


BAG IT! 

Each season we create an ABFM bag that sports our logo on one side, and the logos of our terrific Partners on the other. This season, we've gone BIG and ORGANIC! This large bag is made from heavy-duty, organic cotton canvas with poppin' red handles. These will go fast, so don't wait. [Also, thanks and a shout-out to Rick Roth of Mirror Image, who made it possible for us to offer this bag without breaking your bank.] At market, check out our ABFM aprons and organic T-shirts, as well!
