Marblehead Farmers’ Market peaks in season Aug. 26

It’s the height of the season at the Marblehead Farmers’ Market, offering a plethora of fresh produce including apples, peaches, berries, corn and tomatoes. Shoppers can also find peppers, potatoes, beets, carrots, cucumbers, beans, squash, a wide variety of cooking and salad greens and more.

Participating farms this week include Anything Grows, Middle Earth Farm, Grant Family Farm, Bear Hill Farm, Clark Farm, Brookford Farm and Old Stone Farm. Nick Cloutman will have mushrooms and Al’s Hives and Honey will have honey for sale.

Scouts BSA Troop 79 will be on hand to brew coffee and tea as well as offering lemonade and water. National Sharpening will also be at the market to sharpen knives and other tools.

A&J King Artisan Bakers and Bucovina Cuisines will be serving up baked goods and Ukrainian food respectively. Olive World will be selling olives, olive oil, tapenades and culinary argan oil.

Musical entertainment will be provided by Willie T & Doctor X, a singer/songwriter duo performing mostly original acoustic roots-rock/folk/blues (also known as Americana). Their music evokes an overall 1970s roots-rock feel, delivered with authenticity.

Craft vendors at the market will include Amy Kostecki with jewelry, Angela Cook with ceramics, Raelinda Wood, Tamara Lord and Adam Cohn. Copper Dog Books will have a selection of books available for purchase and will be taking special orders.

The Conservancy and Recycling booth will be staffed by volunteers Chris Cudihy, Cathy Breslin and Pam Roberts. Grant Family Farm will be accepting SNAP and HIP payments.

The Marblehead Farmers’ Market runs from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturdays through Nov. 19 behind the Marblehead Veterans’ Middle School, accessed via Vine Street, rain or shine. SNAP benefits can be used to purchase eligible food items. For more information, visit or email Steve Fowler at
