We’re only a few weeks away!
“The Salem Farmers’ Market is a tradition that dates back to 1634. With its peak around 1930, where more than 40 vendors sold goods in collapsible wooden stalls, an estimated 10,000 people visited the market on a single Saturday. In the early 1970s, the market ended, and the Salem Redevelopment Authority redesigned the square into what we now know as Derby Square.”
The Farmer’s Market also takes EBT.
“Visit the Farmers’ Market table, we are located off of Front St, on the Lobster Shanty side, and ask for the Market Manager. You will pay him using your SNAP/EBT card and he will give you tokens that be worth $1, $2, or $5. Then shop using the token as cash. That is it. One thing to note, the vendors can not give you change. If the items you purchase comes to $4.75, you will not get the .25 cents back.
What can be purchased:
produce, meat, fish, bread, candy, seeds and plants for growing food
What Can Not be Purchased:
pet food , cut flowers, non-food items”
Above info per the Salem Farmer’s Market website.
The Salem Farmer’s Market is every Thursday from 3:00-7:00 on the Derby Square behind the Old Town Hall. The 2017 market will run from June 8th to October 12th.
