ABFM SEASON OPENING!
This Sunday, June 17
Welcome to ABFM's fourth season — with some excellent new vendors, our wonderful veterans, and . . . TAH-DAH: first-ever ABFM T-shirts for adults and kids! Organic, understated, and wicked cool!
This season, we'll have eggs coming out of our ears (now there's an image); some fabulous new local wine vendors; Egyptian and Lebanese delights; a new array of artisan cheeses; and a local farm whose land has been in agriculture since the 1700s! Stay tuned for the season's special events (think: a Sunday of sampling; getting-to-market-without-a-car; and a very special farm tour).
We are in need of volunteers who can help us set up and take down the market this season. It's a quick and fun way to help the market thrive. Please contact our Volunteer Coordinator to sign up. [We're a tad short-handed — in part, because there are some ABFM babies in the offing!] Stay tuned . . . and thank you for being a part of the ABFM community!
ABFM welcomes EBT/SNAP benefits. Please come to the ABFM stall at market to learn more or visit our SNAP page.
