Off Moody, near the Embassy Cinema
August 1 – October 31, 2020
Saturdays, 9:30AM to 2:00PM
rain or shine
As most of you know, a large swath of Moody Street has been converted to a pedestrian-only thoroughfare. Our new location is close to the shops and restaurants you love, and we're happy to say that all the vendors from the School Street location are in the Embassy Lot. Parking and shopping are more convenient than ever. You'll be able to complete your shopping list in one trip to the new downtown Waltham. In our new location you will be able to see the whole market at a glance, there’s no traffic noise, and best of all, there’s no building to walk in circles around.
The map below shows the convenient new location. The red dots are pedestrian pathways.
PROTECTION FROM CORONAVIRUS
It is more important than ever to fulfill our mission to provide access to healthy, fresh affordable food and support local producers and small farms. Establishing a safe space requires everyone's cooperation. Thank you for being a part of the Waltham Farmers' Market community.
Our intrepid organizer, Marc Rudnick, speaks about our Market this year, in this 2:43 minute fan-made video.
LET'S TALK ABOUT FOOD SECURITY
Have you ever worried about having enough food for you and your family?
Since 2011, the Waltham Farmers' Market has increased access to healthy, local food in our community by enabling people to use their SNAP dollars at our market to purchase eligible food products.
We provide a dollar-for-dollar match program, giving up to $10 per EBT card holder, per week. In 2012, the year we began matching SNAP dollars, we doubled approximately $1,000 in SNAP sales. In 2019, the demand for our matching dollars rose to over $10,000. This year, as you know, more people need some help. To fund this program's growing need in Waltham, we're increasing our fundraising efforts.
We need YOU. We invite you to support our SNAP match program.
Your donation — 100% of it — benefits shoppers and our local farmers, as we are a volunteer-run organization. Waltham Fields Community Farm, a 501(c)3 non-profit, is our fiscal sponsor, allowing deductibility for gifts to the Waltham Farmers’ Market. We will send a receipt if you send a check, or you can print your PayPal receipt if you go that way. To donate please mail your check to:
