The Monson Farmers? Market (MFM) is a Monson-based, all volunteer, non-profit market that operates from late May to early October. Our mission is to promote and support local farmers by providing inexpensive vendor space for the direct sales of seasonal agricultural products and plants for the home garden. With funds from donations and vendor rentals, we give Monson Famers? Market Coupons to eligible Seniors and Open Pantry recipients to encourage the purchase of fresh produce. We make some space available for community groups and a limited number of select local crafters.
The Monson Farmers? Market is held Thursdays from May 25 through September 7, 2017 from 3-6pm in the parking lot of the First Church of Monson. Farmers offer a wide range of products including fresh vegetables and fruits, maple syrup, honey, eggs, meats, jams, relishes, and garden plants. Some prepared foods and hand-crafts are also sold.
In the spring we have vegetable and flower plants, early lettuce, radishes, and eggs.
