The Needham Farmers Market is gearing up for its grand opening on Sunday, June 10 at 1 p.m. on the front lawn of the First Parish on Dedham Avenue.

The market will feature vendors including MacArthur Farm, Neighborhood Farm, Community Farm, Globe Fish, John Crow, Susie’s Bakery, Foxboro Cheese and Gay Grace Tea.

There will also be tables staffed by local non-profits, plus art and music by local artists. Board members and Needham High School students will be working as volunteers.

“It is an entirely different experience from shopping for groceries and our view is that it will increase the sale of fresh foods throughout the community from all merchants in the town,” said farmers market webmaster Tom Gehman in an email. “It is all about venue, making a community event centered on healthy food and spiced by local participants that enrich the life of our town.”

For more information, including a calendar that shows each week’s vendors, go here.
