During this second season, the market will run weekly on Thursday evenings through the end of August at the Riley-Pappas Performance Pavilion. The market will be held rain or shine, with neighboring Pakachoag Church serving as the inside location during inclement weather.
The result of a joint effort between Pakachoag Church, the Town of Auburn, 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. More information about the market can be found on Facebook @AuburnFCM or online at auburnfcm.org.
