I personally like the Walpole Farmers Market in Walpole, Mass. It’s located on a classic New England town common in the heart of a pleasant small town downtown district and has a modest but highly appealing group of vendors. Fresh Catch offers very fresh seafood, Oakdale Farms and Lanni Orchards a wide variety of colorful produce, Annie B.’s some delicious raw honey, and Making Whoopie and Butter Cafe and Bakery some sweet, addictive whoopie pies.
Other quality vendors add to this nice mix. Nice, too, that all the vendors are very friendly. I have been to a few local farmers markets in the Boston area where some vendors must have been hit by the nasty stick! Here, it’s like Mayberry RFD in the Boston suburbs — laid back, nice surroundings and with sincere, helpful farmers market vendors, staff and volunteers making the whole experience quite enjoyable.
The Walpole Farmers Market is located near the town common bandstand at Front and Main Streets, and is open every Wednesday from 2 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. For more information, call (508) 395-6681.
