About the Market

Open June - October

The 2021 Watertown Farmers' Market opens on Wednesday, June 16th!

We're so excited to open the 8th season of the Farmers' Market, and look forward to seeing familiar as well as new faces in our favorite outdoor marketplace~!

Market Updates

This season will be much different than last, now that most Covid-19 restrictions have been rescinded by the State and CDC. As always, we strive to create a safe, inclusive, and comfortable environment, and encourage masks and social distancing for those who are more comfortable, and especially if unvaccinated.

Please help us ensure a safe environment by adhering to the
2021 Market Rules (subject to change)
1. If you are sick, do not visit the market.
2. Please leave your furry friends at home (no pets allowed in the market).
3. Customers can select their own produce, though we are limiting the number of shoppers at our large farm vendors to four (4) at a time.
4. The market space will not be enclosed, but we prefer customers enter on Main Street or Whites Avenue, and NOT enter in between any of our vendor tents.

Market Volunteers will be stationed throughout the market to assist and direct as needed. Please thank them for their service! Market Staff and volunteers will be wearing yellow visors.


Thank you in advance for your support and cooperation in adhering to our updated rules.
