The Fairhaven Farmers Market opened for the season on 6/19/22. Located at 151 Alden Road, the market has plenty of onsite parking, said owner-operator Joe Beaulieu. It’s still a little early in the season, but produce is available, and he said they plan on having corn on the cob available by July 4.
On Sunday, the offerings included strawberries and other early produce, like lettuce, sqaush and herbs; and locally grown hormone free beef.
Rosie from Rosie’s Sweets said it was her first time at the market. All her offerings are made from scratch. She said it was a good first day.
“It’s exciting,” she said. “I didn’t know what to expect. But people came out. Itt was good.”
Cedar Ledge Apiaries was on site selling local honey, and even pollen, which, apparently, is good for combatting allergies. Three members of the Jerome family, Jebidiah, Chris, and Kirsten, said they have bees all over, but only participate in one other farmers market.
The market is open on Sundays, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., through October 30. Call Joe at 508-496-9209, or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
