SUNDAY'S ADDITIONAL VENDORS


ACKERMANN MAPLE FARM

In early 2013, Ian and Caitlin purchased the 36 acres that would become Ackermann Maple Farm, and constructed their business. The sap that flows from more than 3,000 taps is heated using a wood fire, evaporating the water and drawing out the pronounced natural maple flavor for which Vermont is known. The tapping, sap collection, boiling, filtering, bottling, and shipping are all done by Ian and Caitlin. Cabot, VT

CROOKED ROW FIELDS
Crooked Row Fields is a four-acre parcel between the Sudbury River and Nine Acre Corner on Route 117 in Concord. Elena and Karl's mission is to inspire local and seasonal eating, in and around Concord, by offering exciting varieties of fresh and delicious vegetables. Concord, MA

COMMUNITY TABLE

ASSABET VILLAGE
FOOD CO-OP

Building a community
through our
connection to food

The Assabet Village Food Co-op is an initiative to build a community-owned grocery store in Maynard that provides access to healthy, affordable food for the Metrowest/ Assabet Valley area. We intend to stock locally sourced items and be a place where people can fulfill their entire shopping list. We are building a community through our connection to food. Become an Owner in the Co-op and support the regional food system. Maynard, MA

OUR ABUTTERS ROCK!

We want to give a shout-out to the folks (individuals and institutions) that are the immediate neighbors of the ABFM. They could not be more accommodating, tolerant, and generous. Please thank them when you see them — the Spero, Friedrichs, and Watt families, the West Acton Citizens' Library, the West Acton Fire Station and staff, the owners of the parking lot (whose south end we spill onto), and the Christian Science Society. And please, respect these folks' residential properties by not walking onto their lawns and driveways. Thank you!


NOFA SUMMER CONFERENCE

Not just for food and farming nerds! The NOFA (Northeast Organic Farming Association) annual summer conference is a fun and super-educational opportunity to learn more about nearly anything to do with food and farming. August 14–16 at UMass Amherst. Check it out at:

www.NOFASummerConference.org


CLOSING THE LOOP

Please bring to the ABFM canopy at market any clean containers you've acquired during your ABFM shopping, including green paperboard boxes and paper bags. We'll make them available to our vendors for re-use if appropriate.

 

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.

Want to help? Wonderful! Learn about:

• becoming a business/organizational Supporter here

ABFM, 5 Duggan Road, Acton, MA 01720
