Market Scene: Attleboro Farms Farmers' Market in North Attleborough, MA
The Attleboro Farms Farmers' Market is hosted by Attleboro Farm on Sundays and draws a nice variety of vendors from across Massachusetts. While it wasn't exactly bustling, the market had a constant stream of customers while it was open noon to 4 p.m.
My younger brother and I stopped at each booth, chatting with vendors and snagging some samples. (We hadn't officially lunched yet.) They were happy to talk about their products, which were almost universally sourced from within the state. We saw granola the Best Damn Granola Company and grass-fed beef from J.H. Beaulieu Livestock.
Attleboro Farm itself had much to offer as well: large potted plants, flowers, and small trees peppered the slowly-filling parking lot. The main vegetable stands were Oakdale Farms and Confreda Farms. Live music was part of the attraction as well. Gentle crooning from an acoustic guitarist provided a soothing vibe for the afternoon of shopping. This is a covered market operating rain or shine.
