HIGHLIGHTED SEASONAL VENDOR
Each week this eblast highlights the vendors who come to market on alternate weeks or on a "per diem" basis. We've also begun, each week, to feature one of our seasonal vendors — many of whom have been part of the ABFM for multiple years — so that you can get to know them better. Information on all our vendors is always available at our website:
TOWN FARM GARDENS
All natural — always!
At our family-owned farm and nursery, we make delicious pickles, jams, relishes, and salsas. We grow as much of our own ingredient fruits and vegetables as we can, and we source as much of the rest as we can from our neighbor farms. No artificial ingredients — ever!
