Holidays ➛ Gifts ➛ ABFM Swag!

ABFM Totes, Aprons, T-shirts & Gift Certificates

Visit the ABFM stall at market and have a look (and feel): the ABFM 2014 tote, made from organic cotton; our incredibly soft, organic ABFM T-shirts; and our ABFM kitchen/task aprons, made with recycled cotton. They all make great gifts, as do our ABFM Gift Certificates, available in any amount.


It Takes a (West Acton) Village

What if our West Acton neighbors weren't generous, tolerant, and supportive of the ABFM?! Well, that would be very sad. But it's not the case, and we want to appreciate them once again. Thank you SO much to the Friedrichs, Spero, and Watt families; to the West Acton Citizens' Library; to the Christian Science Society; to the Town of Acton; to Acton Pharmacy; and to the West Acton Mobil Mart. Please let these people, businesses, and Town staff know that you appreciate their support of the ABFM.

The ABFM Operates on People Power

The ABFM exists because of our terrific vendors; the support of local businesses, organizations, and individuals; the help of Town of Acton and staff; and the hard work of volunteers.

We need your time and expertise to make this effort not only about buying good food and supporting local enterprises, but also, about community well-being and shared learning.
