Watertown Farmers Market Seeks Input About How It Can be Improved

Organizers of the Watertown Farmers Market want to hear from residents and others interested in the market to find out what they are doing right and what they would like to see change. 

Since 2014, the Watertown Farmers Market has operated in the spring, summer and fall at various spots in the Arsenal on the Charles. The past few years it has been held in the green in front of the Mosesian Center for the Arts (and Panera Bread). The market features vendors selling fresh fruits and vegetables, meat, fish, and other products such as pastries, cider and prepared food. Each week, the market also has musical entertainment and a community table featuring a local non-profit group. After being run by a private group, the Town of Watertown took over management of the Farmers Market last year.
