Thank you to the almost 5,000 people who attended the Salem Farmers’ Market opening day making it the most successful market to date. This year at the market there are many of the same great vendors as well as new vendors offering greater variety including a Certified Organic Farm, a beeworks, local cheese and meat as well as MA wine.

This week the market opened with the ringing of the market bell by Tony Bettencourt from 62 Restaurant and Winebar. Tony led a cooking demonstration with delicious sampling. His presentation was followed by a music act – the Kiwi Kids, who performed environmental songs. Diane DeGuzman was on-site to give free health coaching and from 5 – 7 market patrons enjoyed the lovely music of Qwill. The Salem Farmers’ Market is every Thursday in Derby Square on Front Street from 3 –  7 p.m. now through October 20. For more information or to volunteer contact Salem Main Streets at (978)744-0004 or sfm@salemmainstreets.org.
