Farmers Markets

Did you know that for much of the year you can find a farmers market operating every day of the week in Cambridge and during the winter on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays?

The City supports these farmers markets in a variety of ways, which include facilitating the use of city land, publicizing the markets on the City and Health Department web sites and providing assistance to vendors for permit processing and other matters. The City will continue to work with all farmers markets to promote and improve access to fresh, healthy, food including locally grown.

During the Spring, Summer and Fall the City supports six farmers markets. Two spring to fall markets accept EBT/SNAP - the Central Square Market and the Harvard University Market. In addition, the Cambridge Winter Farmers Market at the Cambridge Community Center accepts EBT/SNAP.
