A hot cup of coffee and a bushel of apples
A frigid wind may blow through Cambridge in the winter, but that doesn’t stop local farmers and businesses from offering their products at the market. On Saturdays from January to April, you can shop, listen to music, and enjoy a warm pastry at the Cambridge Winter Farmers Market.

What to do at the Cambridge Winter Farmers Market
Grab a cup of cocoa or coffee at the start and peruse the food vendors. They often sell fresh fruits, vegetables, cheese, bakery goods, meat, and fish at the market, which is usually held inside the Cambridge Community Center. Looking for a touch of home? Be sure to stop by the tables offering preserves and canned goods like homemade jams, jellies, and pickled items.
Completing the family-friendly experience, the Cambridge Winter Farmers Market also hosts live music, arts and crafts, and other jewelry or clothing vendors. On certain days, children can participate in shows and educational activities like the events put on by the New England Aquarium in the past. Adults also have the chance to add to their cooking skills through classes at the market.
The Cambridge Winter Farmers Market draws in vendors and producers from all across New England. For anyone involved, it is more than just selling their goods: the Farmers Market is about supporting the local agriculture and economic community in the Cambridge neighborhood and surrounding towns.
Past vendors have included Brookford Farm, The Danish Pastry House, and Valicenti Organico.
Supported by the Cambridge Community Center and local volunteers, the Winter Farmers Market accepts Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) cards for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).
