Spotlight on Our Seasonal Vendors

MOONLIGHT FARM

Off ‘Cides Farming

Moonlight Farm produce is never sprayed. No pesticides, herbicides or fungicides will ever have touched your veggies. Nothing but compost and a few key nutrients has ever been in our soil. We deliver delicious, chemical-free vegetables and eggs from respectfully, naturally raised chickens. Since we don't spray our produce, it will have physical flaws. We want to share with you our yummy tasting, imperfect looking veggies!

SUNDAY'S ADDITIONAL VENDORS

BEE FIELDS FARM
Bee Field Farm medicinal garden contains more than 100 different herbs. All the flowers and shrubs planted in our garden have been planted for their medicinal, edible, or pollination uses. We use organic and biodynamic gardening practices to enhance and enrich the fertility of our beautiful garden. Our preparation process is very simple: we harvest, strip, sort, clean, infuse, pour, pack, and label our products by hand. Wilton, NH

CAULDRON FERMENTED FOODS
We are a fermented foods company — in fact, Boston's first fermented foods company! We are two co-founders looking to bring the delicious taste and healthy benefits of authentically fermented foods to the great city of Boston. We offer four products: Black and White Sauerkraut (Sauerkraut with black pepper); Salvadoran Curtido; Fire Cracker Carrots (Spicy fermented carrots); and Dilly Beans (String Beans fermented with a classic dill and garlic pickle profile). Malden, MA

MANRAAJ LIQUID YOGA
Freshly made herb juices served as incentives for yoga or exercise for us when we grew up in India. For the last few years, we have been recreating the same magic. Manraaj, a liquid yoga company, is our attempt to spread the goodness to others and serve health-conscious folks. Lowell, MA

SA'S HOMESTYLE
Sa's Homestyle is the maker of Sa's Sweet and Spicy Sauce. Our magical sauces enhance the taste of anything they're put on. Versatile, it can be used as a dipping/finishing sauce, marinade, BBQ sauce/additive, or cooking ingredient. We offer the following varieties: X-Hot, Hot, Mild, and Mild w/ organic cider vinegar. These sauces have some warmth, but even our spiciest variety will not set your mouth on fire! Natick, MA 


ARTISAN

WILDFLOWER TEXTILES

Hand-dyed Apparel & Home Decor

Susan Staudaher’s Wildflower Textiles offers hand-dyed scarves, tops (adult, youth, and infant), tea towels, aprons, and more. Her inspiration comes from nature, including plants from her garden, and from trips to botanical gardens, national parks, etc. Most designs are created with the batik method, using melted wax as a resist; she also uses a silkscreen process. The professional Procion dyes are absorbed by the fabric, rather than sitting on top like paint or ink would. Sterling, MA

NATIONAL FARMERS MARKET WEEK ENDS SUNDAY

Come by the ABFM stall on Sunday to see the works of young, budding artists who took away images to color last week and will have them displayed this Sunday. Grab a temporary farmers market tattoo while you're there. And tell us how the ABFM matters to you!

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.
