Under the direction of new Farmers Market manager Haley Hanton, an experienced health and fitness professional, the Market is planning many exciting initiatives for the coming season - including yoga classes, musical guests, and fun new vendors such as cider houses and smoothie popsicles.
These new initiatives will supplement an already existing outstanding selection of local produce, as well as the critical matching program to enhance the buying power of veterans, seniors, and low-income individuals paying with WIC or SNAP.
"I am devoted to making this market not only a captivating platform to shop local produce and artisans, but a venue to enjoy your day full of activities and excitement,” said Hanton. “My goal is to create a community around health and well being."
“The Revere Farmers Market serves a critical role in helping Revere families access healthy, affordable food,” said Mayor Brian Arrigo.
“The steps we are taking this year will help bring the market to the next level, by also making it a destination - a place where families and friends can come together to enjoy food, crafts, arts, public events, and more. I’m excited to cut the ribbon next Friday and get this season started. Residents will see continued improvement in the Farmers Market in the seasons to come.”
