The Egleston Farmers Market is ending after eight years
The sad news was delivered via an email newsletter. "We are sad to announce that after 8 lovely years, the Egleston Farmers Market is closing. From the Our Lady of Lourdes Parish Hall to the parking lot of JPNDC, the market has hosted many talented growers, artists, makers, movers, and shakers. Thank you to everyone for your support over the market’s lifetime," said the newsletter. The market started in November 2012 at Our Lady of Lourdes Parish Hall, and grew in size and popularity.
The Egleston Square Farmers’ Market will kick off its spring season on May 5th during the annual Wake Up the Earth Festival and open at its regular Egleston Square location the following Saturday on Germania Street. The neighborhood is looking forward to the excitement of the 2018 market. "I love how the Egleston Square Farmers' Market creates a destination in the neighborhood on Saturday mornings. I enjoy starting my summer weekends off with a trip to the market where I'll often pick up fresh produce and fish, hear about what else is growing in the fields, and find a tasty treat while catching up with a few neighbors,” said Jamaica Plain resident Kim Szeto. Vendors are also eager for the market to start up again to connect with the community.
