When & Where
Mass Farmers Markets & Waltham Fields Community Farm
Mass Farmers Markets (MFM) is the only nonprofit organization working on behalf of all 280 farmers markets in the state. We help create, sustain, and promote farmers markets and the many benefits associated with them. At the core of MFM’s mission, we support social and economic development and the health of individuals statewide – collaborating with community partners and stakeholders. We serve everyone, from farmers and vendors, to farmers markets, shoppers and their communities. Part of programming is directly running three markets, Somerville’s Davis Square, Cambridge’s Central Square, and Boston’s Copley Square which is also MFM’s flagship market. It is at these markets that we test new procedures and innovative systems to sustain and improve farmers markets and the services provided to Massachusetts residents.
