National Farmers Market Week is August 7-13. In celebration, on Sun., 8/7, from 1–4 p.m., the Fairhaven Farmers Market will be having an extra special event, including games and giveaways for everyone, as well as a bounce house to enjoy on the lawn of Fairhaven High School.
Farmers markets are more than just an outlet for fresh produce and friendly farmers. These markets preserve farmland, stimulate local economies, increase access to fresh nutritious food, buy medicines online, improve community health, and promote sustainability. We feel that our market is a wonderful addition to our beautiful community in Fairhaven.
The Fairhaven Market began nine years ago and currently has multiple vendors selling a wide variety of products, including fruits, veggies, flowers, cheese, honey, eggs, bread, bakery items, meat, pies and many more items. We are also glad to have vendors selling cookbooks, dog treats, local crafts, soap and face painting. Please join us for the first time, or return again to support local businesses and purchase some delicious produce and food.
Our market vendors accepts SNAP/EBT, WIC, and Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program. We are open every Sunday, rain or shine from 1–4 p.m. The Fairhaven Academy Building is open during the market and members of the Fairhaven Historical Society give tours of their exhibits. Green Fairhaven is the committee that sponsors and runs the market, which is a volunteer town committee. We are always looking for new members.
