Thank You to Our Gracious Neighbors
It may not be obvious when you're on Pearl Street, but the ABFM has several neighbors who abut the market. They graciously accommodate the pedestrian and car traffic of the market, the noise, the dogs, and the general hubbub only a few feet away from their homes — and still support the ABFM! We extend our appreciation to them, and ask you to respect that their driveways, lawns, and walkways are private property; please don't traverse them, and please keep your pets off of them. Thank you!
A Little Help from Our Friends
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 Helen, our Volunteer Coordinator, to sign up: volunteers@ABFarmersMarket.org. Thank you for being a part of the ABFM community.
If you are an artist or artisan — or know one — who might be interested in participating in the ABFM this season, please see info here, and contact Dia, our Artisan Coordinator, at
