HIGHLIGHTED SEASONAL VENDOR

Each week this eblast highlights the vendors who come to market on alternate weeks or on a "per diem" basis. We've also begun, each week, to feature one of our seasonal vendors — many of whom have been part of the ABFM for multiple years — so that you can get to know them better. Information on all our vendors is always available at our website:

www.ABFarmersMarket.org/our-vendors


STILLMAN'S AT THE TURKEY FARM

We are a small, artisan family farm, dedicated to producing conscientiously raised, grass-fed and pastured, chemical-free meats, poultry, and eggs. Raised in the small-farm tradition, using sustainable, local practices, our meats and poultry are better tasting, more nutritious, and raised in a manner that is respectful of both the land and the animals.

GREEN ACTON

Using Less, Living Better

Sue Cudmore from Green Acton will be on hand to provide all you want to know about home composting. Food/organic waste comprises nearly 20% of what ends up in the so-called "waste stream." Green Acton prefers to call it the "uncaptured resources stream." All that organic matter can be turned, with minimal effort, into fabulous compost for your garden and yard. Acton, MA

IMPROVING ACCESS TO NUTRITIOUS FOOD

The ABFM accepts SNAP benefits. Use your EBT card and SNAP account to buy fresh, local foods at the market every Sunday during the ABFM season. Come to the ABFM stall at market to learn more about SNAP at the ABFM, and read more at our website.


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 the 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.
