About this Event

Salem Farmers Market 2023 Opens June 8!

The Salem Farmers’ Market will officially kick off its fifteenth season on the second Thursday in June. With over 25 vendors, the market will be held at Derby Square on Front Street in Salem, MA every Thursday from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. from June 8th through October 12th, 2023.

“The Salem Farmers’ Market has truly become a destination for the community for fifteen years now – it’s a gathering place as well as an opportunity to get fresh, local produce and other one-of-a-kind goods,” Salem Main Streets Executive Director Kylie Sullivan said, adding that the market typically draws over 2,000 market-goers weekly. “We are really looking forward to another great season back on Derby Square.”

For five months every year, the largely volunteer-run market allows residents and tourists alike to buy farm-fresh produce, seafood, baked goods, meat, and various other goods. Established farms like Clark Farm and Wally’s Vegetables are at the heart of the market, with an exciting number of emerging farms, including new vendors Dancing Harvest Farm and Hot Pot Harvest. Various specialty foods, bakery products, spices, and non-food vendors complement them. Exciting new additions to the 2023 market include Soney Bees (honey), Sweet Sally’s Baking Co (baked goods), Samira’s Homemade Food (prepared Lebanese food), Midnight Tease (specialty teas), and Shirley’s Famous Puppy Treats (dog treats!), along with many other surprises and additions throughout the season. The market offers live music and representation from different community groups and initiatives every week.

The market is made possible through the leadership of Salem Main Streets and the Farmers’ Market Committee, as well as the generous contributions of numerous volunteers.  We are actively looking for volunteers to help with the weekly setup from 1:30 to 3:00, help at the info table between 3:00 and 7:00, and break down help from 6:30 to 7:30. If you are interested in volunteering, please get in touch with salemfarmersmarket@gmail.com.

As in previous years, the market will continue to take EBT through the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program and has several HIP-participating vendors.  In compliance with the City of Salem’s plastic bag ordinance, we encourage attendees to bring their own bags – or buy a tote bag at the market to support our work!
