2012 Opening Day

Walk, bike, skate or even drive to the opening day of the Attleboro Farmers Market this Saturday, June 2 from 8 to Noon.

This season the Attleboro Farmers Market is sponsoring a weekly food drive to help those in need.

This weeks’ food drive to help those in need will benefit Attleboro Area Council of Churches.

We ask that you bring healthy non-perishable and not out-of -date food products. Food items such as soups, peanut butter, canned fruits and vegetables, pastas, sauces and canned meats are welcome. Cash or check donations will also be accepted. When you bring an item for donation you will be entered in a drawing to win a Kindle. There will be at least two drawings during the season.

9 a.m. to 11 a.m. Gay Barboza will entertain with her musical talent.

We still have some packets of Sunflower Seeds for you to take home to Grow ’em and Show ’em.

If you must drive to the Market, we recommend using the free parking at the Sanford Street Parking Garage, the Sanford Street Municipal Parking lot, the Bank Street Municipal Parking lot, Bank Street, Hayward Street, Court House lot, or the parking lot adjacent to the Community Garden on Riverbank Road. On-site parking will be limited.

Many thanks to The Sun Chronicle for sponsoring the Attleboro-Blue Shopping Bags, to Supply New England’s Kitchen and Bath Gallery as the primary sponsor for the new Sunflower T-Shirts and the additional T-Shirt sponsors – Nelson Family Dental, Sangria’s, Haskell Charter Services, Inc., Flynnstall Audio Visual Wizardry, and Conti Real Estate, all of Attleboro. Shopping bags and T-Shirts will be available for a donation to the Attleboro Farmers Market, Inc., a not-for-profit company.

Neighbors of Attleboro Farmers Market will be welcoming everyone back by giving discount coupons for their services including New England Tire and Speedee Oil Change located on North Main Street. Go to the Managers Booth to pick one up.

Thank you to the Attleboro Youth Council for volunteering this week to assist our regular volunteers and the vendors set up and break down as well as provide assistance to shoppers who need as extra hand.

Produce, vegetables and other local products will be available from these vendors*
