ABFM Opening Day
Welcome to Season 11: June 16–October 27!
Please join us on Pearl Street at 9:55am for opening remarks by Senator Jamie Eldridge, followed by the 10am opening bell and the wonderful offerings of our vendors, artisan, musician, and community table . . . as well as the pleasure of your friends and neighbors!
A quick housekeeping note: Be on the lookout for a slightly different configuration this year. The market will occupy half of Pearl Street and a short portion of Windsor Avenue. All other aspects of the market will remain the same.
Going forward, weekly emails will provide information on our vendors, artisans, community table, and supporters.
The ABFM Operates on People Power
As Season 11 of the ABFM begins, we are so pleased that this little Pearl Street adventure has become a community institution to which many people look forward each year. Indeed, that was part of our hope in launching it!
The ABFM exists because of our terrific vendors; the support of local businesses, organizations, and individuals; the help of Town of Acton and staff; and the hard work of volunteers.
We need your time and expertise to make this effort not only about buying good food and supporting local enterprises, but also, about community well-being and shared learning.
Want to help? Wonderful! Learn about becoming a business/organizational supporter here or about volunteering opportunities here. Thank you!
