Many vendors at the 2020 Watertown Farmers Market will be accepting preorders, including those selling produce, meat, fish and baked goods. Find out more in the information provided by the Market organizers.

Vendor Preorder Information

How do I preorder?

View each vendor’s preorder information below. Shoppers may have to visit a vendor’s website or online storefront, send an email, or make a phone call to place their order. Make sure you always indicate that pickup is for the Watertown Farmers’ Market. Some vendors encourage prepay as well.

When do I need to preorder by?

Preorder deadlines differ with each vendor depending on how much time they need to prepare the order. Pay attention to each vendor’s deadline below prior to placing your order.

When and where do I pickup my preorders?

Each vendor will handle the pickup of their preorders at their table. Placing a preorder reduces your contact at the market, the time spent in front of each vendor, and it ensures the vendor has what you want when you arrive. We expect the market to slow down after 5 PM and suggest preordering and shopping later if possible. Placing a preorder does not allow you to skip the line.

Can SNAP customers preorder?

Yes, preorders are available for SNAP customers with select vendors. Specific instructions for SNAP customers are listed under each vendor when available.

Do I have to preorder?

No. All of our vendors will have on-site shopping available besides Red Fire Farm who is preorder only.
