What can I find at the farmers market?
The produce sold at the farmers market is all grown in the Greater Boston area so it changes seasonally based on what's growing and what can be stored. Additionally, honey from the Boston Honey Company is sold at The Food Project's stand at all markets.
During the summer, expect to see things like summer squash, kale, spinach, onions, garlic, salad mix, radishes, beets, eggplant, cabbage, herbs, carrots, celery, cauliflower, bok choy, corn, and more! Towards the end of the summer, tomatoes, raspberries, blueberries and peppers come into season.
In the fall, carrots, peppers, tomatoes, eggplant, cabbage, kale, swiss chard, salad mix, celeriac, woody herbs like rosemary and thyme, apples, onions, garlic, beets, winter squash, and others are all in season until it starts to get cold.
During the winter, you will see produce that can either be stored or grown in a greenhouse. For example, apples, winter squash like acorn and butternut, pumpkins, onions, beets, carrots, potatoes, and greenhouse tomatoes have all been sold at winter markets this year.
During the spring, you will see a range of produce as the weather gets warmer and things can grow outside again. For example, you will find radishes, salad mix, herbs, and more!
