The Auburn Farmers’ & Cultural Market is gearing up for its second season, which opens on Sunday, June 24. The market is held on the last Sunday of each month, June through October, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Riley-Pappas Performance Pavilion in the Dr. Arthur and Dr. Martha Pappas Recreation Complex at 203A Pakachoag Street. The market is held rain or shine, with neighboring Pakachoag Church serving as the inside location during inclement weather.
Each market event features products from local farms and businesses, with a variety of products ranging from farm fresh food and dairy to handmade jewelry and gifts. This year’s vendors will include Cotyledon Farm, Free Living Farm, Fay Mountain Farm, Royal Crest Farm (meat), Summer Beez local honey, Hollow Brook Farms, Maple Syrup, Giacomo’s Gourmet Foods, Elzire’s Acre Goat Milk Soap, Organnie’s chemical-free skin and body care products, All Wrapped Up, Face Painting by Christine Z, Fur-Friends of Auburn, The Birds Inn, Chloe’s Creations, 4808 Designs, Piya Samant Art, Perkins Design Studio, and Green Valley Jewels. Each market day will feature live music, a bouncy house, and activities for kids.
The result of a joint effort between Pakachoag Church, the Town of Auburn – Recreation and Culture, and the Auburn Cultural Council, the Auburn Farmers’ & Cultural Market was formed to provide Auburn residents with access to locally grown and produced food and to help shine a spotlight on local small businesses.
