The Attleboro Farmers Market (AFM) announces the return of its community hub, promising a season with local flavors, crafters, live music and engaging events. 

Located at 947 Park St., Attleboro, the market will be open free to the public every Saturday from June 15 to Oct. 12, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., rain or shine.

AFM will host between 50 to 65 rotating vendors each week, featuring a diverse array of offerings from local farms, artisans, specialty food producers, food trucks, non-profit organizations, and musicians.

“This season, we’re delighted to bring an array of exciting events alongside our weekly vendors,” said Jermey Hill, IT Coordinator of Attleboro Farmers Market. “From Dog Day at the Market, emphasizing our furry friends and supporting the Attleboro Animal Shelter, to Health and Wellness Day, National Farmers Market Week celebrations, and engaging activities like Touch a Truck, Pumpkin Painting, Yoga at the Market, and E-Waste Recycling, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.”

In addition to providing a platform for local businesses, AFM is driven by a group of volunteers. 

“Our market thrives thanks to the dedication of our volunteers,” remarked Brit Wirth, volunteer president. “We welcome individuals of all ages and backgrounds to join us in supporting our community. No prior experience is necessary, just a willingness to lend a hand and be part of something special.”

Attleboro is installing sidewalks in the area surrounding the market, a development that will enhance walkability and accessibility for attendees. The GATRA bus line includes a stop at La Salette on Saturdays, providing an accessible and sustainable transportation choice for visitors. 

Last season, AFM became a SNAP EBT retailer. This season, AFM is actively working to secure this service again. By participating in the SNAP program, AFM aims to ensure that everyone, regardless of economic circumstance, has access to nutritious and locally-sourced products.
