Before the Beverly Farmers’ Market was founded, the Food Project had established a small market selling their locally grown produce in Ellis Square on Cabot Street. The Food Project decided not to continue running this small market, making 2008 their final season. The Beverly Farmers’ Market began that next season in June of 2009, under the direction of Estelle Rand. We have grown from a four vendor market at Ellis Square to over 24 vendors at the beautiful Veterans Park. We welcome new vendors each year, especially new farmers with unique offerings and specialty crops, backyard gardeners, and food entrepreneurs who use locally sourced ingredients. We take pride in being an inclusive and well curated market for our vendors and our customers.
Thank you for your interest in our market!
Do you want to know more about our policies for vendors? Our policies help keep vendors and shoppers safe while making sure that the market remains true to the mission of supporting local agriculture and increasing access to fresh, local food.
Find out more about this year’s dates of operation, vendor fees, application deadlines, contact information and how to pay. This is great reference information for current vendors or if you are just curious about how the market operates.
BOARD OF HEALTH PERMITTING
Prepared food vendors are required to obtain a farmers' market permit from the Beverly Board of Health. We are very lucky to have the support and guidance of Beverly's Health Inspector, Joe Reale.
Please review the application and return to the Board of Health upon acceptance to the market.
