UNDER THE PERFORMANCE CANOPY
SOMETHING ELSE

Recent AB Regional High School grads Jackson Rowles and Alex Biehl bring their jazzy sound to our market. Alex is a trained classical guitarist who was recently accepted into several music schools for music performance, in both jazz and classical fields. Drummer Jackson is influenced by the mellow side of rock. During live performances Alex uses a looper pedal to mirror the rhythm guitar track while he solos over it. Acton, MA

HAPPY INDEPENDENCE!
With every ABFM purchase, you declare a bit more independence from industrial food — congratulations! And have a great holiday weekend!

 


REPRESENT MASS. AG ON YOUR RIDE!

The New Entry Sustainable Farming Project and Mass Farmers Markets are launching a specialty license plate to support new farmers, farmers markets, and a vibrant Massachusetts food economy. Be an early adopter and supporter of the local food system in Massachusetts by signing up for a Choose Fresh & Local license plate.

The funds raised from these plates will support New Entry's work with new and beginning farmers on our incubator farm and beyond, including training and resources as well as continuing to develop a strong statewide network. They will help Mass Farmers Markets continue to support farmers markets in the state. Additionally, having these plates on the road will continue to raise awareness of local agriculture in Massachusetts and help build strong markets for farmers statewide.

For more and to register, go here.


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.
