MARKET HOURS: 10am–2pm
Special Event This Sunday:
Food Drive for the Acton Food Pantry
Please bring non-perishable food items (within their expiration dates) to market this Sunday for the Acton Food Pantry. Especially helpful are: canned fish, beans, and vegetables; spaghetti sauce; brown and white rice; cereals; and fruit juices.
Volunteers of the Pantry will be on hand (see Community Table listing, below) to collect donations. The need is great because donations are lower during the summer months; please be generous and support our friends and neighbors.
Bring 'em back!
ABFM has launched a take-back program for containers used by vendors. Just bring to the ABFM table at market any (clean) containers you've acquired during your ABFM shopping. We'll make them available to our vendors for re-use when appropriate. Thanks for recycling!
