Haverhill Farmers Market plans June 29 opening

The popular Haverhill Farmers Market returns for its 35th season on June 29 with more than 25 vendors offering products including wine, salsa and unique teas, just a few of the offerings. The market will be open on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. through Oct. 26 and is located next to the Haverhill Police Station, 40 Bailey Blvd. “We are excited to welcome an incredible and diverse group of more than 25 vendors,” said Jeff Grassie, volunteer coordinator. Customers will find farm-fresh fruit and vegetables, baked goods, meats, wines, handmade soaps, unique teas, flowers and plants, doggie treats and much more. The market also features weekly live music, a free craft table for kids, and it partners with a local food pantry so residents can donate extra garden produce each Saturday.
