Brooks Academy Museum to host new farmers' market
Shop for locally-grown produce at a new farmers' market opening in Harwich on Thursday afternoons from 3-6 p.m., June 17-September 23, on the grounds of Brooks Academy Museum in Harwich Center.
The Harwich-Brewster Farmers' Market will feature seasonal fruits and vegetables, herbs, cut flowers, baked goods, and other items at the weekly event, sponsored by the Harwich Agricultural Commission and the Harwich Historical Society.
Vendors include Blue Ribbon Farm, Cedar Spring Herb Farm, Eldredge Farm, E&T Farms, Inc., Gardening With Stephanie, Hemeon's Farm, Lama Farm, Manna Gardens, Not Enough Acres Farm, Pleasant Lake Farm, Dave's Ribs, and jellies from Cape Cod Cranberry Harvest. The market will be held behind the museum off Parallel Street, at the corner of Sisson Road. Parking is available at the museum and across the street at the Recreation Building now called the Harwich Junior Theater Arts Center.
Shoppers will also be able to tour Brooks Academy Museum, which is offering a discounted admission price during Farmers' Markets. Exhibits include maritime, baseball, railroad, and cranberry displays along with some featured 1920s gowns.
The market has been supported by funds from Cape Cod Five Cents Savings Bank and the Cape & Islands Farm Bureau.
