Scituate, Massachusetts – Scituate Farmers’ Market is back this year with its 2021 Revitalization Project. The project eagerly invites residents and local businesses to submit recipes for a cookbook fundraiser and designs for a t-shirt design contest. The market will host weekly themes and demonstrations on various topics, community outreach organizations, and promote community-wide sustainability with guest vendors such as local home and culinary social media influencers, as well as craftsmen that build raised garden beds and beehives. The Scituate Farmers Market Shop will sell items such as market bags, vegetable seeds, vegetable brushes, and market t-shirts. Two spaces are reserved, weekly, for local community outreach organizations. The market is also now a drop-off location for Scituate Food Pantry donations. The new market director, Carla Nee, is working towards encouraging agricultural, nutritional, and cultural education, community outreach, and overall sustainability.
Currently, the market is working on facilitating SNAP Benefits and the Summer Eats program with Project Bread for this season. Summer Eats will provide children with free grab-and-go meals every week. The status of these efforts will be posted on the farmers’ market website.
The market will follow COVID-19 Precautions recommended by the Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources and will be posted at the farmers market as well as on Scituate Farmers Market social media platforms and website.
Opening Day was on June 2, 2021 at 4PM. The 2021 Season will run on Wednesdays 4PM-7PM during the months of June, July, August, September at Scituate Town Hall, 600 CJ Cushing Hwy.
