Dorchester Winter Farmers Market

The Winter Farmers’ Market brings together local farmers selling winter produce with other vendors selling locally made products such as bread, cheese, meats, etc. They include products that are culturally appropriate for the diverse population of Dorchester and the surrounding area. The market will accept EBT cards (food stamps) and double the buying power of low-income residents up to $20 through the City’s Bounty Bucks program.

They are inviting local neighborhood groups working on food and health issues to participate in the market, and local musicians to provide entertainment. The goal is to create a public space that brings together residents from all backgrounds to celebrate healthy food.

Where: Great Hall at the Codman Square Health Center, corner of Washington and Norfolk
When: Sundays 12-3 pm from January through March
