Spring Pop-Up Farmers Market

On four Saturdays, May 4, 11, 18, 25, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., the Attleboro Farmers Market will have a Spring Pop-Up Farmers Market at the Bristol Community College and Bridgewater State University Attleboro Campus, 11 Field Rd., Attleboro, MA (GPS 34 Forest St., Attleboro, MA)

Some of our Farm vendors in past years have asked if we could open earlier than the usual mid-June date since they have produce that they can bring to market. The campus is located just outside of the downtown and is handicapped access with plenty of parking.

Food trucks and other food vendors will be located just outside the entrance in the parking lot.

Opening day for the 2019 season of the Attleboro Farmers Market is Saturday, June 15. The Market will run for 19 consecutive Saturdays ending on October 19. See the complete 2019 Calendar for scheduled events and music.

Flu shots available

The Attleboro Health Department will be at the Market offering a public flu clinic this Saturday from 9:30 to 11:00 a.m. This clinic is open to any individual 3 years and older. Only Flu “shots” are available.

  • Individuals are requested to bring all insurance cards.

  • Any one receiving the flu vaccine for the first time will be asked to stay for observation for 10-15 minutes.
  • To help clinic staff, please wear loose clothing or short sleeves to provide easy access to your upper arm.
