Introducing our New Market Coordinator Lillian Baptist!

Hi everyone! I’m Lillian, the new Watertown Farmer’s Market Coordinator. I graduated from Simmons University in Boston in 2020, where I studied political science and history. Local farms, markets, and businesses are quite close to my heart. After my family started a small farm in Ithaca, NY several years ago, I spent a couple of summers working the local farmer’s market and absolutely loved the environment.

You will see me all around the Market this summer, and please feel free to ask me any questions or to stop for a chat! I’ve heard all about how wonderful the WFM is, and I’m excited to help welcome the community back this year. I am looking forward to a great Market season together!

Host A Yard Sign!

Remind friends and neighbors of the upcoming market with a WFM Yard Sign! If you live in a visible spot and want to host a sign, email watertownmarket@gmail.com and we’ll drop one off to you!
