Naturally (see what we did there?), we kick off our Fab 4 with our hometown’s jewel of a market.
When it comes to community gathering spots, the Medford Farmers Market is the place to see and be seen and where food, entertainment, and fun reign supreme!
Located on the banks of the Mystic River, tucked behind the Condon Shell, simply follow your nose to the inviting scents of freshly baked goods from Batter & Bloom and Doris’ Peruvian Pastries. Then pick up a tub of Samira’s Homemade hummus and some produce from Brigham Farm or Deershorn Farm, and dinner is served!
The Medford Farmers Market is also home to the Condon Shell Summer Concert Series. Bring your dancing shoes on August 10th for a night of Latin music with Lookie Lookie and boogie the night away. Or, if Americana-Blues and beer is more your style, bring your beach chairs and blankets to hear the Tim Gearan Band, a perfect pairing with the beer tent offerings on August 31st.
Don’t forget to stock up on handcrafted soaps, earth-friendly household wares from Trove Green Provisions, and flowers from Harper’s Farm and Garden to keep your home smelling fresh as you await next week’s market!
