With spring arriving and summer around the corner, many people are looking for fun activities to do. Anna VanRemoortel, Executive Director of the Roslindale Village Main Streets, shared a list of upcoming events in the neighborhood with the Gazette:
The Roslindale Farmers Market – Our market opens on June 4th and runs through November 19th. The market is every Saturday from 9-1:30 at Adams Park in Roslindale. Opening Day will be an event full of music, children’s activities, and a ribbon cutting by Mayor Wu. While the market happens at Adams Park, there will also be an art market happening at the same time on Birch St Plaza (more details on this event to come).
