The Market at Second Stage
We are open and have begun our summer season! In-person vendors will be in the parking lot, and online orders will continue with pickup by the garage at the rear of the lawn (enter from Washington Street). No need to even get out of your car.
Outdoor market and pickup time is every Thursday between 3:30–5:30 PM.
Some vendors are only offering online selections, so be sure to view the online order form as well as visit the vendor tables on Thursdays.
Select from fruits, vegetables, soups, entrees, baked goods, meats, honey, and jams. Several vendors offer specialty foods for vegan, dairy free, and recipes made with gluten free products. And lots of farm fresh eggs from several vendors – still only $3 a dozen.
You can also reserve fresh, local ground beef for pickup on July 1 – just in time for your Fourth of July cookouts. Frozen one-pound packages are from Buffalo Creek Beef in Lexington and run $5.50 each.
This week's produce highlights include potatoes, squash, onions, carrots, blueberries, raspberries, and vegetable plants.
We also welcome new online vendor Bonnie Crim. Bonnie will be providing hard-to-find trees and shrubs.
Buy local, frozen chicken today. Process date was June 16 – can't get much fresher! Purchase using the online order form for curbside pickup, or purchase at Mary's vendor table. Options include two weight ranges.
Last summer, a number of you were searching for fresh milk. We are proud to offer you the chance at a herd share with Amanda Willis of Six Days Farm. See more information on this opportunity on our vendor page (link above).
Place Your Order Before 8 PM Tuesday
for Pickup at the June 24 Market
Note: Amanda is cutting back orders due to workload. Please place her orders before 8 PM on Mondays.
