Fall for farmers markets


Culinary news

Check out several Boston open-air farmers’ markets that run through November or December.

While some seasonal farmers’ markets close as the weather cools, a few in and around Boston operate until November or December.

Farmers’ markets aren’t just for summer – there’s still plenty of time this season to get to the nearest market to support small businesses and local farms, and to stock up on fresh produce.

Most markets sell more than fruits and vegetables, adding items like local honey, baked goods, meats, ice cream, and coffee. While some seasonal markets close as the weather cools, below are several farmers’ markets in and around Boston that run through November or December.
