Fans of farmers markets can continue purchasing local food throughout the winter at Coastal Foodshed’s New Bedford Winter Farmers’ Market. The Market is open every Saturday from 10am – 2pm at the Buttonwood Park Warming House (1 Oneida St, New Bedford, MA 02740) from now until April 24
The Winter Market has several vendors offering a variety of local products. Coastal Foodshed also sells a great variety of locally grown products sourced from nearby farms and local food makers, including local veggies, eggs, salsa, jam, maple syrup, coffee and more!
There is plenty of parking at the Warming House, and all forms of payment are accepted: cash, Mastercard, Visa, SNAP benefits, and pEBT. All SNAP customers can also earn HIP benefits at the Winter Market when they purchase locally grown produce.
Coastal Foodshed’s mission is to strengthen the local food economy by making it easier for growers to sell, and consumers to buy, healthy, affordable, local foods. Coastal Foodshed works to increase public awareness and knowledge of health, nutrition, and sustainable agriculture, and to improve access.
