An event every week that begins at 3:00 pm on Thursday, repeating until October 13, 2022
On the second Thursday in June, the Salem Farmers’ Market will officially kick off its fourteenth season on Derby Square. With over 25 vendors, the market will be held at Derby Square on Front Street in Salem, MA every Thursday from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. from June 9th through October 13th, 2022.
“The Salem Farmers’ Market has truly become a destination for the community for over a decade now – it’s a gathering place as well as an opportunity to get fresh, local produce and other one-of-a-kind goods,” Salem Main Streets Executive Director Kylie Sullivan said, adding that the market typically draws over 2,000 market-goers weekly. “The pandemic definitely set us back over the last few years, as it did everyone else, and we are so grateful for all our customers and vendors who stuck with us across different locations and necessary adjustments. We are really looking forward to a full season back on Derby Square at the center of the community again.”
For five months every year, the largely volunteer-run market gives residents and tourists alike the opportunity to buy farm-fresh produce, seafood, baked goods, meat, and a variety of other goods. At the heart of the market are established farms like Clark Farm, Long Hill Orchard, and Wally’s Vegetables, with an exciting number of emerging farms, including Rivershed Farm (formerly Merrimack Farm), Griffin Hall Farms, and Sunspell Flora. They are complemented by an array of specialty foods, bakery products, spices, and non-food vendors. Exciting new additions to the 2022 market include Three Gingers Kitchen (jerky), Svenfish (seafood), Wicked Awesome Brownie, R.E. Kimball & Co (jams), Ran Remedy (cold pressed juices), Mei Mei Dumplings, La Frontera Sabrosa (empanadas), Bridges Nepali Cuisine, and O’Brien’s Garden Center (new ownership of longtime market favorite Gibney Gardens), along with many other surprises and additions throughout the season. Every week the market offers live music and representation from different community groups and initiatives.
