Lowell Farmers' Market

FARMERS’ MARKET LOCATES IN CENTRAL DOWNTOWN LOWELL

Nothing makes you think of summer, the goodness of freshly-harvested produce and the enjoyment of viewing and shopping for unique items in an outdoor atmosphere more than a Farmers’ Market. Open weekly on Thursdays from June 15 through September 14, the venue for this Lowell event will be more centrally located. The market will be setting up this year in the Veteran’s Memorial parking lot (across from the Riverwalk Plaza entrance). Opening to the public from noon to 5:00 p.m. each Thursday, the Lowell Farmers’ Market will be a visible indication of the support we give our local farmers and specialty retailers.
