The Backbone of the ABFM
The real backbone of the market is the lineup of seasonal vendors, who show up every one of the season's 19 weeks. These are the folks you can count on being there (barring the unforeseen) with the goods you've come to count on. Please let them know you appreciate their presence at the ABFM.
Ladies and Gentlemen, the ABFM SEASONAL VENDORS:
• APPLEFIELD FARM Stow
• BAGEL ALLEY Nashua, NH

Special SNAP Offer
The ABFM accepts SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) benefits. The market is a great place to use SNAP: by shopping for the freshest produce (which lasts longer in the fridge), you get terrific nutritional bang for your buck. The ABFM is sponsoring a special offer for SNAP users: we'll double the value of the first $10 you spend in SNAP benefits at market. So if you decide to spend $15 at market, you'll actually get $25 to spend. [This offer lasts until we distribute the allotted $400 for the season.] Come to the ABFM stall at market for details!
