Plymouth Farmer’s Market
The Plymouth Farmers’ Market is a wonderful place to get all sorts of fresh, local, and seasonal products all year-round. The Market offers produce, cheese, meats, and even some prepared foods—all of which are locally sourced. The Market’s goal is to draw attention to the area’s agricultural diversity, as well as to sustain the local food economy. Additionally, it promotes food literacy by educating the public about the seasonal availability of produce and how to prepare health, locally grown meals.
The Culinary Insights program, which is an important part of the Market, spotlights local chefs, food educators, vendors, and health and wellness professionals who demonstrate their talents in the kitchen. In addition to all the educational efforts, the Market is also a wonderful social experience that builds the community through the celebration of the local and seasonal foods found in historic Plymouth. The Plymouth Farmers’ Market also features local musicians during its outdoor seasons. These performances are a wonderful way to browse produce and more, while listening to some of the best local musicians.
