Bedford Farmers Market Adds Online Shopping Feature

April 17, 2018

Bedford Farmers Market is adding an online market to accommodate customers with busy schedules – order online and pick up your local food on Tuesdays. Shopping through the online market starts April 25th. Shop weekly online from Wednesday mornings through Sundays at midnight. Your custom, fresh order will arrive at the Bedford Farmers Market by 3:00 pm on Tuesdays for pickup between 3 – 6 pm, the regular market hours. Shoppers pay a small convenience fee, or subscription, for the service. Check out items available at BedfordFarmersMarket.LuLusLocalFood.com. If it’s fresh, it’s here!

Food Truck Friday returns! New this year is Brother Jake’s Brick Oven Creations food truck. On First Saturdays, there will be cooking demonstrations, wine tastings, live music, pottery demonstrations, and free special healthy living children’s activities by the Bower Center for the Arts.

The Bedford Farmers Market offers fresh, locally-grown produce, meats, plants and artisan goods at the Centertown Pavilion each week. The face-to-face market opens Tuesday, May 1 and runs through October 30. The market will keep the same hours as the past 2 years:

Tuesday 3:00 pm – 6:00 pm

Friday 7:30 am – 1:30 pm, with food trucks serving from 11:30 am – 1:30 pm

First Saturday of each month Community Market – 9:00 am – 1:00 pm
