July 7th Market

This Saturday, say goodbye to the heat wave

It will be a sunny and comfortable day at the Attleboro Farmers Market opening at 9 a.m. to a comfortable 65 degrees with a high of 76. Perfect market day to spend a little more time and talk with our farmers and vendors.

Meet our new vendor, the Rhode Island Shellfish Company and try their tasty stuffies, chowder and other delights.

The Rhode Island master gardeners will be here conducting soil testing all day.

Then bring the mixture in for pH and texture testing to maximize the potential of your lawn or Garden.
