Dear supporters:

Please help us spread the word!

There is a buzz around town about the upcoming Dorchester Winter Farmers’ Market.  Check out the facebook event here: http://www.facebook.com/events/237023609704088/

Our vendors include Silverbook FarmPowisset FarmOakdale FarmsStillman's MeatProofed Artisan and Traditional BreadsLawton's Family Farm (cheese and meat), and more are still being added. We are thrilled that our food vendors will be joined by a revolving set of craft vendors, including the Codman Crafters and textile artist Sierra Rothberg
