Live music at the Framingham Farmers Market on Thursdays

FRAMINGHAM – Week 5 of the new Framingham Farmers’ Market will see the addition of live music, weather permitting.

The market is from 3pm to 7pm at the Framingham Center Common. Food trucks should arrive earlier around noon.

“Last week we had a similar weather forecast with possible thunderstorms and we survived with clear blue skies all day. The market will be open unless we are in the middle of a storm…our vendors have prepared items and things are cool on market day! Don’t let a little heat over 90 degrees keep you away,” said market manager Bill Sell.

The Antarctica duo are set to play ’60s and ’70s pop covers, Sell said.

“They will play a few sets right in the middle of things. Over the next few weeks we will be including more unique programming, including more music,” Sell said.

Three farms are scheduled for Thursday, July 21. These are Heavens Harvest Certified Organic Farm, Wild Robbins Farm and Silverwood Organic Farm.

“We will have all the greens kale, chard, cabbage, dandelion, corn, peppers, cucumbers, zucchini, summer squash, lettuce, cabbage, cherry tomatoes, spring onions…peaches and plums in limited quantities as they are just arriving in season” says Sell..

Parking is available in many lots surrounding the common center, Sell said.

“With summer programs underway at the Danforth, we ask our guests not to use the back ground at the Danforth until 4.30pm; all other available lots are marked with Framingham Farmers Market parking signs. Vernon Street is no longer a parking lot (except for a set of vehicles from the bakeries as they keep extra goods in their vehicles). Road construction has made Vernon Street difficult to allow parking,” Sell added.
