September 2022 Newsletter: Concord Ag Day!

Veggie Racer ready for action!
Is fall finally in the air? Will the promised rain actually arrive today? Maybe we have finally turned the corner and left the intense heat of this year’s summer behind us? It feels like fall is truly here, and this time of year reflects the best that New England has to offer: our crop variety and abundance are on the increase and the gamut of summer and fall produce is on display in all its glory. While high summer crops like tomatoes and melons are beginning to fade, the late summer/early fall veggies like winter squash, potatoes, winter radishes, beets, and turnips are beginning to make appearances.

In celebration of the New England bounty, this upcoming Saturday we are attending the 17th annual Ag Day farmers’ market on Main Street in Concord center. This unique market showcases the bounty of Concord’s many farm businesses at the height of the growing season. There will be a few activities for the kids, lots of information about great local organizations that support agriculture, and of course, your Concord Farmers selling their bounty!

Ag Day will run Saturday September 10th from 10 AM to 2 PM on Main St., which will be closed from the roundabout to Walden Street. Additionally, the Concord Free Public Library, in partnership with Concord Conservatory of Music, will be having an Ag Day Concert from 11am-1pm on the library lawn – come enjoy some free tunes before or after visiting the market – Please check out www.concordagday.com for all the details!

Because of the Ag Day market we will not be attending our usual Saturday market at Union Square, Somerville. Our apologies to our Somerville customers! We will be back in Union the following week. 

We hope to see you soon either at Ag Day, or at the farmstand!
