The Waltham Farmers' Market celebrates its eleventh season at the Sovereign Bank parking lot in downtown Waltham, June 16 through October 27. The market is held rain or shine, and will run from 9:30 am to 2:30 pm every Saturday. The Sovereign Bank parking lot is located at the intersection of Main and Moody streets, across from Waltham Common. The lot can be reached by car from Main Street or Charles Street. WIC coupons are accepted by all farmers. Senior citizens receive a 10 percent discount at participating vendors. Volunteers are needed to help set up and break down the market each week; to take surplus food to soup kitchens; to post and drop fliers; and to help with other committee tasks. Wheelchair accessible. For more information call 781-893-0361 or 781-899-6230, or sign up at the market master's table at the market.
The market has had several artists exhibiting in recent weeks, including a photographer, a potter, and a painter. We're looking for more. If you are an artist, or know of one who might be interested, please write to Scott at firstname.lastname@example.org.
