Egleston Farmers Market to start season

The Egleston Farmers Market will kick off its new, long season June 1 and will hold a barbecue fund-raiser the same day.

The farmers market, held at Our Lady of Lourdes Parish Hall at 45 Brookside Ave., debuted last fall as a cold-season indoor market. But it proved so successful that its new season is expanding.

The market now will run June 1 through next February. For now, it will run every Saturday, 10 a.m.-2 p.m. and will be outdoors in the parking lot as well as inside the hall.

The nonprofit market’s organizers are holding a pork barbecue fund-raiser (with vegetarian options as well), along with a beer garden provided by Jamaica Plain-based Samuel Adams Brewery, after the market’s hours on June 1, 2-5 p.m. There are a variety of ticket prices with different options for that event.

The market has more than 20 local and regional vendors of fresh and prepared foods, along with art, music and information about other activist efforts. It is organized by JP resident Kate Peppard along with leaders from Egleston Square Main Street, JP New Economy Transition and Good Egg Marketing.
