One of the best things about living in Natick is its year-round Farmers' Market. It is located on the Natick Common in spring and summer and moves indoor to the Common Street Spirituality Center in fall and winter.
The market features several local farms, various food vendors, and many talented artisans. I wrote about many of them in my posts below, but there are definitely a lot more I didn't capture. To meet them all, simply stop by on any Saturday between 9 am and 1 pm!
Looking for fresh produce, meat, poultry, eggs, cheese and dairy, or even flowers? The local farms will satisfy every need. Here are just some of the farms you will find at the Natick Farmer's Market:
