Thank you for patronizing the Westwood Farmers Market. Unfortunately, we will no longer be continuing the Market.
Despite our best efforts to attract and maintain a healthy number of vendors, this season has been a struggle. We are left with only one committed vendor - Great Harvest Bread Co. Unfortunately, our previous farm vendors were short-staffed this season and decided not to return to Westwood. We reached out to more than 80 vendors to find replacements. Of those, two new farm vendors tried out the market, but each found that the number of customer visits and sales volumes were simply too low to justify their expenses.
We cannot continue the Farmers Market without at least one farm vendor. As a result, the decision has been made to close the market.
Customers are encouraged to visit Farmers Markets in nearby towns, including Dedham, Norwood, and Needham. For a schedule of days and times of local markets, visit: https://massnrc.org/farmlocator/map.aspx?Type=Farmers%20Markets
The Town will be happy to support any group who may be interested in forming a volunteer-run Farmers Market in the future.
