Apples fancy enough for royalty, grown for your family by Lanni Orchards.


The last market of the year is a bittersweet occasion. It seems like just yesterday we were hanging signs from every nook and cranny of Medford, hoping you guys would come hang out with us at our new location. (Nope, that’s not a tear in our eye. It’s juice from this apple we’re eating, thank you very much.) But rather than get too sentimental, let’s celebrate! Apple Fest returns to the Medford Farmers Market 3–7pm this Thursday, 10/12, our final week of the 2017 season. Allergic to apples? We’ve also got loads of live music and free yoga led by Jenna of Medford’s own Corner Studio. Get full details below, but heads up: IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE IN THE COMMUNITY BAKE-OFF, YOUR LAST CHANCE TO REGISTER IS TODAY, TUESDAY 10/10. To sign up, email us at medfordfarmersmarket@gmail.com. And thanks for a fantastic season, you guys. We couldn’t have done it without you. Sniff.
