Medford Winter Farmers Market opening this week!

Medford Winter Farmers Market December 5, 2012
Winter logo
The Medford Farmers Market proudly invites you to continue shopping local and independent-every week throughout the winter! 
Starting on Thursday this week (Dec. 6th) our first Winter season kicks off in our new winter location. Stop by the Hyatt Place hotel in Medford Square, just across the street from the site of the summer Farmers Market to get the goods!  At 4PM, Mayor McGlynn will perform a ribbon cutting ceremony to mark the beginning of the winter season! 

Curious about who is coming? For the growing list of vendors, visit our Facebook page.
 
Wondering how to get there? This video will show you the way.  Just park behind Hyatt Place, walk in towards the lobby and then take the elevator or stairs down to the bottom level. The parking garage will be closed off to traffic (to maintain good air quality and temperature) so the only way in will be via the elevator or stairs.
 
We can’t wait to see you on Thursday!
 
Fruitfully yours, 
The Board of Directors of the Medford Farmers Market

This winter, the Market is sponsoring a free table for various community organizations each week at the market.
  
This week, we have Medford Special Education Parent Advisory Council (SEPAC).  Their motto is “Where Everyone Belongs” and they advise the District on matters that pertain to the education and safety of students with disabilities by seeking input from the Special Education parent members.
