New Market Hours This Season:
10am – 2pm
Perhaps you love sleeping late, or read the Sunday paper over coffee for hours, or get yourself to services each Sunday morning. AWESOME NEWS FLASH: you can do these (well, maybe not ALL of them) and still make it to market! We're there, rain or shine, until 2pm, so no need to rush. We love the opening-bell crowd, middle-of-the-market goers, and those-who-are-slow-to-rouse.
Please check out our new 2010 ABFM grocery bags and, by popular demand, ABFM aprons — available at the ABFM table.
ABFM Highlighted partner of the week:

In business in our 1800s farmhouse for over 50 years, we are pleased to support local farmers through the ABFM.
